Living Skills: Organic Farm Tour & Lunch

If you would like to see how an organic farm is managed and ask questions about its operations, do not look further than the trip to Common2Us, a small Dural farm growing organic vegetables. 

The farm manager, Borja Valls, will take us on an extensive tour through the farm and after that will cook us lunch - a real Spanish paella!

Common2us is a small scale, organic market garden located in Dural, approximately 45 minutes from the city CBD. Currently farming on 5 acres, a small team of farmers produces a wide variety of chemical free, seasonal greens, vegetables and fruits, using organic farming practices.

You can purchase their produce through the farmgate shop, weekly vegie boxes or at weekend markets, so this outing is also a great opportunity to do vegetable shopping!

It is a great way to spend a Saturday morning, surrounded by picturesque pastoral landscape stretching as far as an eye can see, fresh organic vegetables  around and a great lunch! 

WHAT TO BRING
Small knife, fork, eating bowl/plate, water, drinks (wine if you wish).

Please wear walking shoes and outdoor clothes.

By popular demand a second 2014 Living Skills mushroom picking tour beyond Blue Mountains is open for registrations!

As usual, we will go to one of the State Forests, identify and collect edible mushrooms (Saffron Caps and Slippery Jacks). These are easily recognised (also recommended by the State Forests), but just to be sure, Margaret will check all finds in your baskets.

Then we will prepare a tasty lunch and also learn how to preserve the bounty by pickling

Your guide will be Margaret Mossakowska.

WHAT TO BRING
Small knife, fork, eating bowl/plate, water, drinks (wine if you wish), and a perforated container for collected mushrooms (wicker or plastic baskets are the best). Be warned that we do pick a lot so don’t bring something too small.

If you would like to pickle some of your harvest, bring a few sterilised jars (100-200g size) with lids.
 
Please wear good shoes and warm clothes, including rain gear.
