Long time and no blog, but I just have to share with other like-minded people an event we went to a couple of weeks ago….drum roll….The Off Grid Living Festival Held in Eldorado near Beechworth in North East Victoria. This was the most encouraging and inspiring community of people. With over 200 stalls with areas categorised in sustainability, farming, energy and transport and water and waste. We were positioned in water and waste given our soap berries are all natural and have no chemicals adding to the waterways.
We were lucky enough to back on to our buddies at Verve who we know from Kongwak Market and are just so much fun to be around, and the gorgeous Nat from Secondlovesvintage being all inspiring with her van life! Check out that amazing van.
Plenty of activities and informative talks on composting and brewing Kombucha to name just a couple. The kids dressed up as knights from the box wars guys, we patted horses, listened to amazing music, particularly Whiskey Dram (who absolutely rocked the festival) and ate, ate, ate!!
There was so much interest in the Soap Berries. From the uninitiated who I could give a demonstration to right through to long term users who could spruik them better than I could.
Our gorgeous friend missmeaningful popped up from Melbourne for the weekend with her kindness bars to help and enjoy the festivities, and thank goodness she was there as Saturday was incredibly busy at the stall, and as she has discreetly mentioned more than once- how would I have coped without her!
If you are looking for inspiration, I urge you to consider attending next year- we will be there- come along and say Hi.
