GULP Fact Sheet Workshops

We  would love tell you about an exciting project put together through Food Care NT, as part of its “Learning resources” to share our enthusiasm and knowledge of local food and collaborate with other organisations.

GULP (Growing and Understanding Local Produce) Recourses is a project proposed through Food Care NT and auspiced by the Environment Centre NT. The project proposes to work collaboratively with different Darwin Community Organisations, to research and develop local food recipes. The project proposed is to produce a resource of garden produce based recipe cards available online and that can then be downloaded or printed- we would like to feature particularly Wet- Tropical ingredients. These recipes will be trialled and tested through workshops open to the community. PArt of the funding to run this project has come from City of Darwin, Community Grants.

Recipes will be contributed from different members of community gardens and community organisations. The recipes will then trialed during workshops, involving a testing committee (consistent) and also open to the wider community (in capped numbers)

So we would like YOUR INPUT.

We would like to know if you are interested in-

  • Contributing recipes to go into workshops
  • Being on the testing and selecting panel (please be able to commit to attend all workshops)
  • Attending workshops
  • Hosting Workshops (as a food/ gardening/ community organisation)
  • We would like some representatives from different organisations (MSK/ Mulch Pit/Lakeside Drive Community Garden/ School Gardens etc) to be in the tasting panel or hosting workshops
The second stage of this project will be to compile a recipe book, professionally designed, and printed on recycled paper with high quality photographs. The book will be used as a fundraiser for all contributing organisations, and available at a pre-print wholesale price. We hope to raise the printing costs for this book through sponsor ship and crowd funding
