Herb Rustic Gift Box
Check out this great site we found that deliver really affordable, environmentally friendly tree and plant gifts across Australia. We love their range of living gift ideas which include fragrant lavender chalk boxes, herb rustic gift boxes, luscious lemon tree tea hampers, and even succulent zen bowls. You can order from their lovely range online and have it delivered to your special someone, generally within a couple of business days.

Fragrant Lavender Chalk BoxWe used Growing Gifts recently to mark a friends 30th birthday milestone and she just loved it. It's a unique gift idea and is so easily purchased, as Growing Gifts take online payments, and carefully package and courier your gift to many destinations around the country.

It's a surefire hit that any friend or family member are sure to love. Not just that, but you are also showing care and conservation towards our planet by giving a living gift that continues to grow.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea documentaryIf you're in Melbourne, check out the free pre-screening of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, a documentary which tells the stories of how an asylum seekers path can lead them to becoming a 'boat person'. It includes interviews with many refugees, secret camera footage & gives refugees a chance to voice, in their own words, the circumstances that push them down their given path.

The film-makers of this film are chasing an ambitious goal to be able to take their film on the road to screen in 30 venues across Australia and the only way they can do this is if they raise $60,000 by 1pm this Saturday 27th October - that's less than 50 hours away! So if you'd like to see this story shared across Australia please support them via their crowdfunding campaign which you can find by clicking here.

If you can’t attend, you may get a chance to view this documentary when they hit the road – but only if we all give generously!
