Scarves, sauces, and sounds!

by Mapleton Hall Coordinator, Donna Klease

The Mapleton Hall and Sportsground hosts and supports the Mapleton Country Market with the first market being held in 2018. Over the years the market has grown and is now showcasing stalls from many talented locals.

Kris Morris is a resident of Mapleton and an art teacher at a Sunshine Coast state high school. When she has time, she creates eco-dyed garments and scarves - all ethically sourced, wall hangings and table runners, using fabrics such as silk and wool.

Kris uses mostly leaves sourced from her own garden. When the leaves are heated, they release their colour which produces a stunning, naturally dyed one-of-a-kind garment. Stop by Kris's stall and view her eco-friendly products, she also does photographic cards of the scarves for that something different and unique.

Who doesn't like homemade chilli sauces, chutneys, jams and marmalades! Kath and Nick have you sorted outside on the three-acre sportsground. They have a huge selection of native and fruit trees, herbs, native ground covers and assorted plants.

They recycle any used plant pots, which are cleaned to reuse and therefore reduce waste. They are happy for you to drop off at their stall or they can pick up locally. A wonderful initiative.

The ever-popular Landscape Band will be entertaining us with their folk, country and light rock. The band is made up of a group of passionate people who believe in celebrating Australia's landscapes, using music to create a better society and sustainable planet, as well as protecting, restoring and rehabilitating koalas. Stop by and say hello to the guys.

Don't forget to bring your bags and pick up some Bunya Nut pesto, organic pizza bases, local Mapleton gold honey or sourdoughs such as sundried tomato and fetta, Kalamata olive, Jalapeno Cheddar, grain, and white at the hall's kitchen.

The Blackall Range Lions Club have you sorted with egg and bacon rolls or a sausage sizzle, and at the hall's kitchen enjoy yummy waffles with seasonal fruit, cream or ice cream.

Inside and outside our stall holders will have that something special, so make a day of it on March 25 from 8am to midday. See you there!
