Week 3 – Eat Tassie Fruit and Vegetables

This is probably the easiest of the Challenges given the spectacular range and quality of produce on our doorstep in Tassie.

This is a great week to think about planting some of your own fruit and veg too.  Sustainable Living Tasmania has a basic guide to gardening in Tasmania, which includes a planting guide to show you what can go in the ground this week.

If you’d prefer instant gratification, there are loads of Veggie Box schemes that you can access to have fresh Tassie produce weekly.

Finally…it is time to start thinking about next week’s challenge – Host a Tassievore Meal for your friends/family.  We’d love to hear about your menu plans,comments from your guests and see some photos!  One lucky person, who shares their story with us, will get 2 Free tickets to Sustainable Living Tasmania’s 4th Annual Living Local Feast, which will be held in Hobart on Saturday, 12 April.

    • Hi David and Vicki,
      Apologies for this – did you send a message with your address to our Facebook account? I have forwarded your query to Bridget from urban farming so she will check the Facebook in case it got overlooked. Best wishes Pen on behalf of the Tassievore team
