    Nest is turning 5 and

    Nest is turning 5 and

    Celebrating 5 years of Nest this 21 June with a weekend including Market, Whole Larder Love workshops, Photo Field trip & Birthday Dinner party featuring guest speakers, banquet of local food & wine and live music.

    We are stoked to be welcoming Rohan Anderson of Whole Larder Love on a debut trip to Tumbarumba for a soiree and sharing of skills at Nest this June.
    A little extra excited as it coincides with our 5th birthday so we are making it a party.

    Nest friends, growers, adventurers, hunters, cooks, food lovers, locals, city dwellers…everyone is invited to share the weekend in our picturesque part of the world.
    Rohan Anderson is a family man, a talented DIY-er and a modern day Hunter Gatherer.   Primarily concerned with how to live off the land and provide himself and his family with fresh, local food, Anderson has become an expert hunter, fisher, forager, gardner, pickler and peasant cook. 

    He will be sharing some of his sustainable secrets, experiences and story with us in person over two workshops and dinner hosted by Nest.
