Mark your calendars Novocastrians! On Saturday June 1, The Olive Tree Markets are hosting a unique event that promises to be a vibrant celebration of culture and community.

Immerse yourself in the rich traditions of Aboriginal peoples with the Weave I Yarn I Connect workshop. Join Speaking in Colour art educators for a community gathering at The Olive Tree Market to weave, yarn, and learn.

This free drop-in workshop combines artmaking with learning about Aboriginal culture. Feel free to stay beyond the weaving activity for conversations about the historical impact of Reconciliation Week on First Nations communities and the role of allies on the journey ahead.

In addition to the cultural immersion, you’ll also have the chance to meet new members of The Olive Tree Market family including Jacqueline and Renee, the founders of Seanut, who will be offering their original handmade peanut butter, crafted from organic peanuts and a touch of sea salt.

Their journey from Central America to Sydney is a testament to their passion for peanut butter and commitment to sustainability and community. Be sure to swing past their stall and say hi!

And let’s not forget the music! The Olive Tree Market will be alive with the sounds of local musicians. Kick off your morning with the alt-pop rock gems of Anna Weatherup, followed by the smooth bass lines and honeyed vocals of Bodie. And don’t miss Jarrod Grant, who’s sure to leave a lasting impression with his deeply personal musical output.
