Annual Meeting for Year ending June 30, 2016

Thank you to all of the members who attended our very convivial annual meeting 🙂

We will upload the minutes very soon but the long and short of the future is:

We have 5 directors- 1 old and 4 new.

We are going to install a Paypal card reader and absorb the admin costs ourselves.

The new fridge is attracting attention and looks to be a good decision so far.

The new location in UTS Building 5C is going better than expected with many students and staff from Law and Business Faculties popping in to find out who/what we are and why didn’t they know about us before *sigh*

We are still hosting the local Hub of Harvest Hub and they promote us in their forums in return.

We are introducing new products now and again but, as usual, our biggest ‘seller’ is the information we provide on organics and sustainability.

In closing we look forward to seeing all of our friends soon- either virtually or here in our new shop (where sunlight abounds!). Either way be healthy, be happy, and be safe.

DIRECTIONS:

Combine the dates, honey, pumpkin puree, chia (or flax) seeds, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the oats, coconut flakes and pepitas. Mix until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

When the mixture has cooled and become stiff enough to work with easily, shape it into your desired size of energy balls. Alternately, you can line a small baking pan with parchment paper and press the mixture evenly into the pan, let it cool, and then cut into bars.

Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for about 3 months.
