The Garden Shed and Pantry Handover Celebration
All my customers are invited to come and celebrate the handing over of The Garden Shed and Pantry to the new owners, Esther Cooke and Paola Tanner at 11am – noon on June 1st, at 4 Winns Road, Cygnet (my place).

This will be the last day of sales from my home shop. The details of its new location will be revealed at the handover!

Esther and Paola will continue the market stall and I will go along and be a helper from time to time 🙂

Almost 8 years ago, a few months after I arrived in Cygnet, I started selling gardening stuff and organic, Australian wholefoods in a tiny little enterprise I called The Garden Shed and Pantry.

It has grown and supported me; it has brought me in touch with people who care about their health and that of the earth and many of you have become my friends. It has been a wonderful and fulfilling journey.

I am not leaving Cygnet and I will continue with my sourdough and other workshops.  

Offer of 10kg boxes of almonds
The wonderful Johnston and Somerton almonds just keep on coming and Richard (from Willunga Almonds) has a stash of 10kg boxes still available in a refrigerated warehouse in Melbourne.

The offer will be $180/10kg box. Whole boxes only. Pick up only.

Crop Swap 8
My front shed….. 4 Winns Road, Cygnet.
Come with something, leave with much more….. goodies + new contacts + joie de vivre.
Arrive by 11am and set your wares on my trestles (or BYO if you want to supervise yours). Please be on time.
Then we talk about what we have brought…. I love this bit as everyone has a story.
At 11.30 we take what we would like. Everyone is polite and only takes a fair share. There is a lot of chatter and laughter and good will and generosity. By 12 everything is gone and my trestles are empty. Lovely.
Then we have coffee and nibbles (usually something I make but if you’d like to bring something as your wares to share, then all the better).
PLEASE ONLY BRING THINGS RELATED TO FOOD, to Crop Swaps….. growing, cooking, preserving, eating….. books, tools, plants, garden produce, kitchen creations, animal manures, pots, seeds, jars, netting, bean poles, dumpster doings, or skills like tool sharpening, catering, fence weaving etc etc

Square eftpos
The Garden Shed and Pantry now has credit card, debit card, chip and contactless payment facilities! Square is a simple and cheap system suited to every form of transaction. It may be cheap but it is not free, so I would still prefer cash but no longer will there be any inconvenience if you do not have enough cash with you!
