Interview: Beth Taylor
I will never look at a breadtag in the same way again! I dropped into Sweets Workshop to check out Breadtag World which is the current solo exhibition by inner westie, Beth Taylor.

Marrickville Council Environmental Initiatives

Marrickville Council Environmental Initiatives
Having just bought a property in the inner west I am always excited to find out about environmental initiatives of the Marrickville Council. I recently made my first visit to the Marrickville Organic Food & Farmers Market which was a foodies delight but while exploring the stalls I stumbled across a nursery out the back near The Bower. The Marrickville Community Nursery sells native plants but...
