Tasting the Plains: Diversity and Choice.
It was a day to remember, when a crowd well in excess of a thousand people on Sunday packed the Caroona Hall and its surrounds to show support for the Taste of the Liverpool Plains. The SOS Liverpool Plains girls delivered with a smorgasbord of food, music, entertainment and speakers to celebrate the diversity and to demonstrate the productivity of our Plains.
Speakers Al Gore ambassador Nell Schofield , journalist broadcaster Jane Singleton, ‘Bush Goddess’ Penny Scott and local district chef Chris Galvin delivered from their own experiences. Prominent green ban activist Jack Mundey eloquently outlined the parallels of preservation of the prime food production area of the Liverpool Plains and the preservation of Australias heritage. Outside the Hall, Aboriginal dancers and musicians Champagne Charlie complimented the food stands of breads, meats, cakes, wines, and berries whilst other stands promoted local plants, olive oils and natural fibres.
The outstanding success of this showcase event yet again shows our determination to preserve our precious food producing Plains from the ravages of mining.
