Fiesta on George – Saturday 18 October 2014
We were there in Yorktown Square with a table of our ‘goodies’ to share with the community. It was a wonderful day with everything happily working for everyone – the weather was good, next door stall holders were lovely to talk to, great viewing of what was happening, great coffee/tea/hot chocolate was there for the drinking.
Thank you to anyone who stopped and chatted to us – it was great to meet so many new people. Thank you, too, for our invitation from Urban Farming Tasmania (our contact was Bridgette) to come along and join the fiesta fun. We had a ball and have already hinted we would very much like to come next year.
