On Friday 9 Oct, my daughter and her brave friend Liam were caught in the strong rip current in the middle of Scarborough beach. I would like to thank Charlotte Noble and two other gentlemen for rescuing them – they were magnificent. Charlotte also made sure that the ambulance medics did all that was necessary for Liam, whom she saved just in time. A brave attentive and kind super-lady. I am truly thankful.
Exciting New Dairy Product @ The GreenShop
During the past few weeks we've been hard at it sourcing suppliers for our new venture at The Village Hub.
On Tuesday afternoon we'll be receiving our first batch of the most fantastic dairy, from pasture fed cows – no GMO, no maize or soya in their diet. These handcrafted dairy products contain no artificial additives, flavours or any preservatives, and have no added sugars or starches.
Not only is the dairy all natural, but the milk from these amazing Fleckvieh cows is a true supper food as it contains A2 – beta-casein. This is very important as A1 – beta-casein, as found in most commercial breeds have been linked with numerous modern diseases such as diabetes, auto-immune diseases, and other neurological disorders. The milk has the highest levels of CLA and Omega 3 compared to other dairy, and more importantly a balanced, almost 1:1 ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6, compared to around 1:9 for conventional dairy. The milk is further also rich in melatonin. In addition to the dairy, we have just receive our long awaited shipment of organic rice, oats plus a whole new range of tasty healthily snacks
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Writer / Editor – I am writing up a Master thesis on a social science subject and am totally stuck.
The subject is Small scale farmers, decision making, seeds, agricultural biodiversity (Andre: I am not sure this sentence in red on the subject is needed at this point of time…)
I am urgently looking for a professional that can help organizing the information I have and write up with a fresh mind. I have to hand in in 5 days time, so it is really super urgent… Thanks for letting me know so we can discuss when, what and how much
