A stall at the Morningside Festival

In the blogasphere is it ok to tell you about my Sunday on a Tuesday morning? Monday disappeared under a pile of washing as we had a beautiful sunny day here in Brisbane with a bit of a breeze – and a row of washing lines out the back just waiting to be filled with billowing sheets.

I set out for the farm at 6:30 on Sunday morning as it was the day of the Morningside Festival and Beelarong Community Farm  where I have my allotment were running a stall. My friend Di took on the responsibility of organising our stall and has been preparing for this event for months.

Volunteers met at 6:45am to load up everything required to set up and stock our stall. We had plants nurtured over the past few months, fresh posies made late on the day before from flowers picked at the farm, jams were made from the rosella bushes that grow at the farm, worm juice from our worm farm, we had gardening books and magazines.

Di also took a great variety of vegetables to set up an impressive display to catch the eye of the passing parade – as well as raising funds for the farm we wanted to encourage new members.

So three cars and a ‘Ute’ were loaded to the gunnels and off we went to set up our stall.

It was a bit nippy when we started setting up but the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful day.

I took some photographs, of course.

I believe that days like this add so much to the life of our communities. And it’s fun!
