Someone asked me today what is so special about Rootstock Sydney. It’s a hard question to answer because the magic of Rootstock hides in amongst all the things Rootstock has on offer.
In between a lineup of incredible producers and their natural wines, the insight into food and culture, the feasts and the discos – there is real magic.
Rootstock really is a festival of all things sustainable in food and drink. It’s a thoughtful showcase of food and drinks, the culture surrounding them, and a part of creating the kind of culture the Rootstock team want for the future.
One of our highlights of Rootstock is always hearing from Uncle Bruce Pascoe and Gurandgi Munjie. They’re a group of indigenous Australians working to recover traditional food plants of their culture. They have a crowd funding campaign going to fundraise to revive and commercialise some traditional grain crops – and an amazing cause. Take a look and support it here.
We were really stoked to be an event partner for Rootstock this year, and help the team bring together another amazing festival. It’s an one that always leaves us equal parts exhausted, reflective and completely inspired.
