Two Fires Festival - Carrying the flame of Judith Wright's passions …



Forum: Once and Future Landscape Care.

Featuring historian Bill Gammage.  Bill argues the 1788 landscape was the product of long-standing, sophisticated, intricate management.  What does this have to say about Indigenous Australians, and about learning (again) to live well within a healthy, enduring landscape?  Bill will be joined by indigenous writer Bruce Pascoe and local landcare enthusiast Ben Gleeson.

National Theatre, Friday, 2.30-4.30pm


Walking and Talking the Land

with Uncle Max Harrison.  This is always a festival highlight and this time we  will hold it along Half Moon Road, Mongarlowe.  The walk will pass Judith Wright’s former home, “Edge”.  See Indigenous stream for logistical details.

Starting from Ryrie Park, Saturday, 8 – 10 am


Information Session: Our Heirloom Seed Inheritance

with Clive Blazey, founder of The Diggers Club.  Calling all home gardeners, market gardeners, farmers and lovers of fruit and vegetables!  Learn about our heirloom cultivars, F1 hybrids, and the challenge from purveyors of genetically-modified seeds.

Tour: Wynlen House Market Gardens

with Bronwyn Richards.  Bronwyn operates Wynlen House, a small “urban farm” and market garden within Braidwood town, producing vegetables, eggs, meat and other products with much love, clocking up Food Metres rather than Food Miles.

LunchEat at Wynlen House

from Garden to Plate in only Twenty Metres.  Limited to 12 places, book early!  While Bronwyn takes us on a tour of the market garden, her partner Helen Lynch will be cutting some slick moves in the kitchen.  They will dish up a tasty lunch of Wynlen House produce over a couple of courses.
