Put JUNE 21st till JUNE 23rd in your diary and book your tickets now!
We will also be running a tour of several small scale farms on the Fleurieu Peninsula on Friday 21/6/19. There’s only 80 tickets available for the tour (two bus loads) so get in quick! We’ll finalise the tour locations soon (so many good ones to choose from…)
Of course the Deep Winter party is a pretty important part of the whole event! This year we welcome caterers Francesco's Cicchetti to take the pressure off us vollies and prepare a feast of local produce. Once you've filled your belly, meet all and sundry as we heel and toe around the show hall with bush band Ewe-calyptus. Yes, you may think a BUSH DANCE is the epitome of dork but rest assured it will be heaps of fun! We are also thrilled to welcome the legendary Max Savage and the False Idols to the stage to keep us warm into the depths of the night. Local booze will be for sale at the bar.
Finally, we are also really excited to offer a sister tour as a part of Deep Winter this year. Join Annemarie and Graham Brookman at The Food Forest, an award winning, certified organic peri-urban farm and permaculture learning centre near Gawler. Tour the 20 hectare property, including the 1200m2, intensive vegetable garden and observe the integration of chickens, geese & sheep in a low rainfall ecosystem that produces 150 different varieties of fruit, nuts, vegetables, and value added products. See environmentally responsible buildings constructed with straw-bales (including a coldroom), passive & active solar energy collection, a compost toilet, waste-water reedbed systems and a aquifer recharge project.
