Rebecca Sullivan brings "Granny Skills" to Ganmain!
On Monday 21 October the Advance Ganmain Committee hosted a catered morning tea with Guest Speaker Rebecca Sullivan. This special event was held in conjunction with the Taste Riverina Food Festival at the Ganmain Hall, Ganmain.
As a self-taught cook who has worked with some of the world’s best producers, environmental academics, activists, chefs and restaurants, Rebecca spoke of the importance of “Granny Skills” which enlightened her audience of approximately 80 people.
Rebecca told stories of her travels and summarised her column, ‘Dirty Girl Kitchen’ where she refers to communities of women from our Multi-cultural Australia who possesses skills such as growing food to making soap, brewing stock to weaving a basket. Termed by Rebecca as ‘Granny Skills’, on Monday she revealed how this concept has evolved into a worldwide 'Granny Skills Movement' and, how it is relevant to individuals and communities.
Locals and visitors from throughout the region enjoyed Rebecca’s presentation, had their books signed and marveled over a great showcase of local art and produce from an array of stallholders which included:
