Fun and Deliciousness! 2016 Living Local Feast

A huge thank you to all of the amazingly generous volunteers, growers, foragers, brewers and businesses who made this fundraising dinner a stunning success!  

They came, they laughed, they feasted, they helped support the great work of SLT!

Our 6th annual Living Local Feast, a celebration of Tasmanian food and drink, was held on 2 April in Hobart. Chef, Hugh Flint joined the team and helped to create a truly phenomenal menu highlighting the best of our region and season.

Sustainable Living Tasmania’s Living Local Feast is unique in that it features exclusively Tasmanian ingredients.  With a stellar summer growing season this year, the menu featured sun loving produce such as eggplant, capsicum, avocados and basil to name a few.  Most of the items were sourced from small scale and backyard growers and all of it was Tasmanian.
The feast comes at the culmination of the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge, a program that ran throughout March, encouraging Tasmanians to support local businesses and choose Tasmanian food and drinks.  The Tassievore Eat Local Challenge is just one of the projects that Sustainable Living Tasmania runs to create a sustainable and prosperous Tasmanian community.
Thanks to the donations from many amazing Tasmanian businesses and individuals we were able to raise more than $2,000!  Here are the people that contributed generously, please support them!
