I’m Going to TEDx Sydney (Does a Little Dance)

I’m going to TEDx in Sydney in three and a half weeks!! (She does a little dance).  The invitation email came a couple of days ago, and I’m still hugging myself excited.  The speaking line up is exciting, but for me, the big thing is being part of a 2200 crowd-sourced, Matt Moran catered dinner party and a whole Opera House full of ideas about real food.

What should I take?  I have to travel from the North Coast, so it has to be something that travels well and isn’t too heavy.  There will be lots of people closer by to bring fresh greens and herbs.  I’m wondering whether I will have enough macadamias ripe by then.  The olives should be just about ready.  I have tropical spices like ginger and turmeric.  The limes will be on. The pecans should be cured and ready.  Flying has such a huge carbon footprint, but then, do I have time to take the train?  Decisions….

    That sounds so exciting! How wonderful for you. Please be sure to tell us all about it when you get back 🙂
    By the way, thank you for your advice a few weeks ago about garden orientation; I just finished reading your book and am now re-thinking my whole approach! I still need to keep some ‘conventional rows’ due to the lateness of the season, but I’m in the process of roping off a few mandalas to start my permaculture experiment–I’m so excited!

    You’re a saint Linda! Just fly, you’ll have a nicer time.

  • Linda April 11, 2013, 10:55 am

    I think I am Corrin. I will only have a couple of days available and I’m not keen on spending them on a train. T’ll plant a few trees instead!

    Those are all lovely items that you list to take. But if you are flying – Ginger and Tumeric can be utilized in lots of ways plus they travel well.
