We’ve been feeling pretty crappy with everything going on across the pond right now. And like us, you might feel like you want to do something. We want all refugees to feel welcome, and one amazing organisation that works hard to make that happen is Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC). So we’ve just donated $10,000 (on top of our regular donations) to help them provide much needed services for those seeking asylum here in Australia. If you feel like donating too, you can either do it directly through their website, or, if you’d like to donate a box of toilet paper to families setting up home, you can do so below. After all, nothing says welcome like a box of dunny paper. #refugeeswelcome https://au.whogivesacrap.org/products/donate-a-box-of-toilet-paper-to-asrc

Today is a time to celebrate and reflect on all the events, lives, tragedies and triumphs that have made us who we are today. From the first steps on our shores, through the First Fleet, the gold rush, and the many waves of migration – we’ve all made a contribution.
It’s a time to reflect on the impact that colonisation has had on the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – and the ongoing trauma that affects their social and emotional wellbeing.

Following from around Australia, and wondering how the URBAN FOOD STREET neighbourhood ticks and what it is like to grow fresh food in the street. Love to know more about our streets of food and the enduring sense of community that forms when we interpret the suburbs and our expectation of how we live in the suburbs - differently. Don't miss BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS this Friday night. That's only two sleeps. Friday 3 February on 7 @ 7 pm. #seven #onthetelly #FRIDAY3FEB #URBANFOODSTREET #peoplestreetfood
This one really hurts still. I think about you all the time, bud. I know I've said this before, but when I think back to some of the best memories I had early in my career #DaveMirra was in them. This is still a really hard pill to swallow. #RIPMirra #BeADadNotAFad
