Renowned author Marion Halligan’s books often include the great pleasures of food. Marion will speak about the importance of food as a theme in her prolific writing including The Point, about a fictitious restaurant. It is a novel of intricate complexity and wit about our appetites and desires, and the way they irrevocably shape the world.
Robin Innes of historic Innes Boatshed fame is from one of the Batemans Bay families of fishers and oyster farmers. Robin’s focus will be on the history of fishing in the region, especially the Clyde River.
They are joined by local farmer Fraser Bayley who will speak about the philosophy of growing and using local produce. He will talk about the SAGE (Sustainable Agriculture and Gardening Eurobodalla) Project and Old Mill Road Bio-farm, his family-run small mixed farm enterprise that has been providing produce to a local consumer base for eight years.
