Buy Local!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

One thing that has come out of the Covid crisis for myself is a renewed focus on buying local.

Facing empty shelves made me realise how fragile out food security is and how much we rely on goods from overseas.

So my focus is not only buy Australian, but take that one step further and by locally made and produced, where possible. It might be a little less convenient than picking something up when I’m at the supermarket. It might mean spending a little more. But for me, peace of mind and quality mean so much more.

This post I am going to highlight local fruit and vegetable suppliers who deliver and also meat.

Of course, many of these things can be purchased at your local farmer’s and grower’s market. They are all over our region on different days. But if you can’t make it, this is the next best thing.

What our kids need now…

Posted by: | Comments (0)

With so much happening on the planet right now, this Coffs Coast teacher is on a mission to help our kids not only cope with the world around them, but flourish.

“It’s all about putting kids in touch with their loving side, Sparky, and their fearful side, Shady,” says Kathy Sheehan who developed the Sparky and Shady program and books in 2014, with endorsements from Clinical Psychologists and Beyond Blue.

“I help kids understand how their body, their thoughts and feelings all work together,” explains Kathy. “When your child understands this, they can manage their feelings and cope with problems or situations like we are facing now with COVID-19.”

Forced to cancel her April school holiday workshops, Kathy is tapping into her Sparky side and generously offering her lessons online for only $20 so more families can access this support from home (workshops normally $330).

Lessons will be taught live by Kathy online each weekday from April 6th and only take 20 minutes a day. Kids or parents can catch-up on recordings whenever it suits. Families who’ve already experienced Sparky & Shady programs agree it’s time well spent.

“I just found the strategies were so useful and they really worked for managing anxiety,” says Sophie Stojic who took 10 year old daughter Danika to the January workshops.

“It was amazing how using the short-cuts worked. It was really good to see the change that’s happened in the last few months.”

Meanwhile Jennie Begg credits Kathy for teaching her 11 year old grandson Kai life skills that don’t come naturally, yet aren’t being taught in most schools.

“Normal education often just ignores emotional intelligence and how kids can get on with other kids,” explains Jennie who says the program gave Kai useful tools to practise.

“The reason I’m so passionate about Sparky & Shady is because given a little help, our kids can be brave enough to follow their dreams and make a positive difference in the world, and isn’t that exactly what we need now?” adds Kathy.
