Will it affect you?QLD STATE ELECTION - Moggill Candidates Forum - Mon 20 November - OLR, Kenmore

With so much planning and preparation going into making this year’s Pullenvale Spring Fair a day to remember, the Pullenvale State School Spring Fair Committee made the tough call that the event was going to go ahead. After all, the rain was easing up and maybe a few of the local Pullenvale families would turn up. Even though the ground was saturated and the rain was just light, there were a few patches of blue trying to break through. To the surprise of many, everyone still turned up. The fairground was filled a sea of happy, muddy Pullenvale State School kids wearing grins from ear to ear. By all accounts, the day turned out to be a huge success, and undoubtedly left all who attended with a sense of participating in a memorable event. Pullenvale State School P&C President Sean Goodsir congratulated everyone involved with this year’s event for a job well done under stressful conditions. However, Sean could not confirm at this stage the rumours that, as the kids had so much fun in the rain this year, the P&C would consider putting on sprinklers on the day of the next Pullenvale Spring Fair!

Economic and social theorist, Jeremy Rifkin, in his groundbreaking work, The Zero Marginal Cost Society (2014), goes beyond the usual stilted conversation around digital disruption and the idea that we can somehow protect ourselves from impacts by simply becoming flexible, and by embracing new technologies in a bid to bring them under control and into servitude. Rifkin, instead, expands the concept, as any good Futurist would, to examine the impact of digital disruption, not only on individual businesses, which may or may not cope, but also the impact it will have on the entire running system of the contemporary world: the economic system, aka The Free Market, or the capitalist project. He notes that digital technology will drive the marginal cost of production to near zero, and as such, it will completely destroy the ability for the capitalist system to function (no margin = no profit; no profit = no motive). Added to that is the reality that much digital disruption is a form of ‘democratisation of innovation’ (as Rifkin terms it). Simple ideas like access to, rather than ownership of, services will change the way we live and consume. Rifkin sees that, in the future, our obsession with GDP will be replaced with a measurement instead of social value, individual happiness and the state of the environment.It’s a concept that has been known to Futurists and Historians alike for many Rifkin hypothesises the sunset of the Second Industrial years, yet even though the business world has been grappling with it for some Revolution—that of a society built on oil—lasting 30-40 years.time, digital disruption has only recently come to the forefront of the public What he believes we are seeing now is the result of digital disruption.mind.

Jam! That’s Good! Everyone’s favourite jam is made from this hardy hibiscus family flower bud: nearly everyone’s Grandma had a shrub or two in the garden, and we all loved the extraordinary pink sweet stuff! Rosellas are not hard to grow, and the jam is easy to make. The Rosella (Hibiscus sabdariffa) stems from the family Malvaceae and goes by many common names, amongst them: asam balanda, bissap, edible hibiscus, flor de jamaica, grosella, karkade, lumanda, luo shen hua, meshta, omutete, paya, queensland jam plant, rajeab, rosela, roselle, saril, sorrel, susur. Since it originates from tropical West Africa, it naturally prefers a warm climate, making it ideal for local conditions. Rosellas are annuals, and will grow to a height of 1.5 metres. It has large, reddish leaves with distinct lobes, and has pretty hibiscus- like yellow flowers. There are very frew pests that bother Rosellas, and they can be extremely productive. Three or four bushes will yield more than enough flower buds to turn into the precious jam/jelly/syrup that you might fancy on your Sunday morning pancakes. Rosellas will thrive in any kind of soil, so long as it is well-drained. They do like to drink a fair bit to keep the plants growing strong, and especially when flowering and fruiting. The plant does well with a good mulching.PAINT SALE Plants will be ready for a first harvest at about three months, but will continue to produce buds for around nine more months after.

The naughty nightime knaves set about carrying out strategic dusk to dawn raids and plundered all the new potatoes in just about a week. They were very obviously overjoyed: the possum barn dance they held on the roof every night of that week got me thinking they had possibly worked out a way to brew the potatoes into an excellent batch of ‘potcheen’, a traditional Irish distilled alcholic beverage made from potatoes. I am quite sure I heard them falling off the roof more than a few times that week, in between what might be mistaken for a possum-y version of a gargled Whisky in the Jar. Sometimes experimental gardening techniques don’t work out as planned, however we did discover that as the possums had access to the potatoes, they have for now lefteverything else in the garden untouched.

Planting some foods for wildlife is a waywe can all remember that we are on their land and they don’t have a concept thatthey might be on ours! Over the last few months, I have fielded a few comments from naysayers questioning why anyone would bother growing food when it is so plentiful in the supermarket. My thoughts on this (you knew I would have SOMEthing to say, right?) are this: The American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor and second President of Mensa, Buckmister Fuller, said that “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” What we are endeavoring to do with the TLB Urban farm is to demonstrate simple ways that everyone can take to reclaim a level of sustainability and security with our food.
