As we begin to celebrate the festive season, there is opportunity to have a break and enjoy time off with friends and family, I begin to reflect and take time to acknowledge the support of others over the past year. Our family greatly appreciates your investment in the gifts we organically grow, harvest and craft from nature, it enables us to keep growing.
We will be posting final orders on Monday with free express upgrade for delivery before Christmas. Orders must be placed by 10am on Monday morning.
Read on for some personal notes
It's been a challengening couple of years for our family and business. You may have been aware that our home, a vast parcel of high conservation bushland in the remote north west was back burnt as a hazard fuel reduction strategy during the start of the 2019 & 2020 catastrophic and devastating bushfires on Kangaroo Island.
Although the media continues to portray that all is well, it will take time, and a lot of work and preparation for the community and Country to heal. Overcoming the immediate trauma and shock has taken the past couple of years, however the images, pain and scars are still deeply embedded. As the summer approaches the fear is once again reignited.
Reading 'Fire Country' by Victor Steffensen instilled a sense of hope, genuine ways forward through ancient knowledge and culture. Burning to adapt to climate change, healing with the good fire, increasing biodiversity and providing sustainable landcare.
In November our family had the honour of hosting Victor Steffensen, Traditional Owners and community with ancestral connections to Karta (Kangaroo Island) at our home; to read Country, ways to heal the biodiversity, reduce the ongoing fire threat, connect and discuss how we can work together for the future.
We are so grateful to Firesticks Alliance Network, Nature Conservation Society of South Australia and Landcare Australia for supporting and funding this unforgettable opportunity.
