Victoria’s West Gippsland region will play host to the sixth annual Creative Harvest, which brings creative minds and green thumbs together in a celebration of sustainability. Held over 27–28 January, there’ll be 15 open food gardens to visit, plus 30 artists and producers in attendance, as well as workshops, talks, market stalls and refreshments. To keep across the gardens and creatives lined up for the 2024 event, visit www.


Turn a much-loved button-up shirt into a kitchen apron by cutting off the sleeves, back panel and collar, but leaving the base of the collar intact. Cut two strips of fabric from the back panel, attach them to the sides to form a back tie, and you’ve made a useful item that you can love for another decade or more.
