Gathering 2015 cover final
I am so pleased to announce and invite you all to our very first DC Gathering!

Sunday December 13, 2015, join us for a relaxed and intimate 2 hour event at the vibrant South Yarra studio space, Frankie&Swiss. Enjoy a glass of bubbles on arrival before we listen to three inspiring speakers, including a demonstration on how to brew the perfect cup of tea by Sarah Cowell of Tea Sense.

Afterwards, be treated to a scrumptious seasonal afternoon tea spread (with delights from the DC site) and walk away with some new friends and a gift bag filled with special gourmet goodies from our generous sponsors.

This will be the start of what we hope will be many more DC gatherings to come, a celebration of our foodie community, learning, eating and buying consciously, and addressing ways we can inform ourselves, support each other and the inspiring businesses and producers around us. 10% of the ticket profits will be donated to a local Melbourne charity. Want to join us? Make your BOOKING  here.
