Lentil, chickpea and tomato salad Green Gourmet Giraffe

This past weekend has been a quiet one for slowing down to tidy the house, read, chat with our neighbour and eat salads.  I love getting out of the house but I could do with a few more weekends like these.  And I could do with more salads like this lentil, chickpeas and tomato salad.

I found the recipe in a supermarket magazine.  It looked beautiful and seemed a good way to use up the parsley in the fridge and the mint in the garden.  As so often happens, it took a few days to get around to making it.  I picked some mint before the recent hot weather to save it but by the time I got around to make it, the leaves were not quite as green as in the above photo.

I was able to salvage some mint from the picked bunch and from my pots.  While the mint was straggly, it was doing better than my parsley which is struggling but hanging in there.  In previous years I have tried to grow parsley in pots and failed but this year I am hopeful I will find my parsley mojo.  It seems to grow like a weed for others so it might finally work for me.

Unlearning in India Day 2: Shikshantar Peoples Institute For Re-Thinking Education and Development CERES Community Environment Park

Guest Post by Dr. Ben Habib

From 2nd-12th December 2017 I co-facilitated a CERES Global tour to India, themed around sustainable development, permanent culture and un-learning. My focus for the tour was to collect data for my research project on permaculture as a transnational social movement and to learn more about alternative education models as a teaching and learning professional development immersion.  This posting is one of a series of my daily reflections from the tour on what our group encountered.

On day two of our CERES Global Sustainable Development, Permanent Culture and Un-learning tour to India we visited the Shikshantar Peoples Institute for Re-thinking Education and Development.  Shikshantar is an applied research institute dedicated to catalysing radical transformation of education. Shikshantar was founded as a jeevan andolan (life movement) to challenge the hierarchical, colonial culture of education.

During this visit we enjoyed a presentation by co-founder Manish Jain on the workings of Shikshantar.  I had seen Manish speak engagingly and provocatively on education at the 2015 Local Lives, Global Matters conference in Castlemaine, and more recently at the 2017 International Permaculture Conference in Hyderabad in the immediate lead-up to this trip.  I was intrigued to experience first-hand the un-learning education model Manish had discussed at these events.

Why Starbucks everyday is bad for you healthy international students blog

And its ok upon occasionally.

Starbucks is a franchise and they have a few stores in the city and some in the suburban areas. They mostly employ young workers who might not be paid properly. The ones in the city are always the busiest as people look for their coffee fix or sweet iced drink.

Damn fine BBQ consider the sauce

  Tex-Oz Smokehouse, 12 Synnot Street, Werribee At what passes for a dining room at Tex-Oz Smokehouse, youll feel gravel underfoot. Youll sit on plastic chairs while eating at tables apparently made of something like packing case wood. Youll eat from cardboard containers while using plastic cutlery. Youll order from a food truck parked on []

Triennial at the NGV, Melbourne "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

A few days ago when it was a hot 38 C, we spent an afternoon in the air conditioned National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) viewing the Triennial exhibition.  It was a fun exhibition with lots of colour and surprise.  Artists from all over the world were represented with lots of activities for kids.

Going to the NGV on a hot day is brilliant if only for the water wall out the front.  Inside is a colorful structure to relax on a snaking seat that I did not photograph.  Then you feel the awe at this giant reclining Buddha surrounded by classical nude statues, created by the Chinese artist Xu Zhen.  The statues look tiny but they were actually life sized.

Our next destination was the drinks station in the cafe to fill our water bottles.  We had already eaten at Southbank and so, sadly, did not have the time or inclination to eat in this gorgeous replication of a Moroccan tea house, designed by Hassan Hajjaj.  It was stunning with bold colourful patterns, milk crates with cushions, and beautiful hanging glass lamps.
