Newsletter - 3rd December 2023

Happy weekend to you 🙂


Apologies for the delay in getting the newsletter out this week - we have been away on camp, and that’s thrown the week into disarray! And yes, it rained. A lot.


We have added another fundraiser this week. We rely on our fundraisers to help pay our overhead costs, including insurance, fees (banking, accounting software, website, shop, Consumer Affairs), and so much more.

We have had some tomato kasundi, jam, and chutneys donated for us to sell and raise funds. It is now in the orders list under ‘Tomato Fundraiser’. Many thanks go to Lil Sparke for the opportunity! The condiments are made with whole food products, without any fillers, thickeners or additives.


Our bimonthly orders would normally have closed on Friday, but I will leave them open until tonight, 10pm, as I did not send out a reminder about them closing while I was away.


Please remember to purchase your 2024 FOP Australia Wall calendar for their fundraiser if you have not already done so 🙂 You can read more about FOP and the need for the fundraiser here.


We have some of our usual weekly and fortnightly orders open this week, as well as one monthly order, and three bimonthly orders.


Orders Permanently Open


A reminder that the following orders are always open and available for purchase:


  • Mango Fundraiser - this will be open until the Fills trays sell out. More information can be found in the 2nd September Newsletter.

  • Tomato Condiment Fundraiser - this will be open until the products run out.

  • Cheeky Monkey - Heat bags made from 100% cotton fabric and thread, with removable, washable covers. They contain corn instead of wheat, making them suitable for people with wheat allergies. You can read more about them on the product pages;

  • Olive and Bee Intimate Cream - recommended by one of our members who has been using it for a couple of years. It has uses as a moisturiser and massage oil as well as a personal lubricant. It has two ingredients - olive oil and beeswax - and is Australian made and owned by a small business. We have some tester tubes coming soon. You can read more about it on the product page;

  • There are always items available in Fills. Fills are important because they let us buy items in bulk (by the carton) so we can continue to get big discounts, but items do need to keep moving through there to keep us financially viable 🙂 So if you need anything, or want to treat yourself to something (there’s always cheese!) head over and check out Fills.



Orders Currently Open


The following orders are currently open (links open each order page):

  • GF Precinct - local, handmade gluten-free breads, wraps, dinner rolls, burger buns, pizza bases, bread crumbs and cakes, using locally-milled stone ground buckwheat and organic besan (chickpea) flours. Their products are preservative-free;

  • émotions - bamboo and recycled toilet paper, tissues and paper towels, including a range made in Melbourne (remember that if you have never tried their products before, you can buy samples (individual rolls) of the four different toilet paper types they offer at any time from Fills or from the émotions shop page). émotions is a Melbourne-based social enterprise, run by women and donating 50% of profits to mental health organisations;

  • Dr B's BARF - biologically appropriate raw food for dogs and cats. This order opens monthly;

  • Unique Health Products - a wide range of organic food and non-food items. The range includes many items that make great gifts (see the "gift ideas" filter in the order page), and also many items that reduce waste, including cling wrap made from sugar cane, compostable rubbish bags, silicone baking mats and freezer bags, travel mugs, stainless steel lunchboxes and so on;

  • Kin Kin Naturals - highly effective laundry and dishwashing detergents and powders containing no nasties, made in Queensland by a small family business; and

  • Olive Green Organics - sustainable fish in glass jars and BPA-free cans, and organic gluten free pasta.



Temporary Change to Bass River Dairy Order


A reminder that the Bass River Dairy order will be open fortnightly for the foreseeable future. It will open in the same week as the other dairy and fridge/freezer goods suppliers (Blue Pumpkin and St David Dairy). It will open next Friday.


Please get in touch with any questions.


Have a lovely week and happy shopping!
