Garden helps Felicity take root

VALLEY local Felicity Watson is loving spring in Grafton, not least the tasty and succulent treats that grace the table at this time of year, epitomised at the recent degustation lunch during Causley Fresh Gate to Plate.

"Food defines my sense of place," she says.

"The first thing I did when I moved back to Grafton in 2009 was to start a blog documenting my country adventures for friends back in Sydney, and it quickly became focussed on the wonderful produce and places to eat in the region, as well as my kitchen garden experiments," she said.

Currently enjoying a well-earned breather after coordinating the NAB 2011 Business Excellence Awards in Yamba last weekend, she is looking for a new challenge.

"Becoming involved in the awards was a perfect opportunity to get involved in the community and move outside my comfort zone, bringing together a huge event.

"I would love to continue helping local businesses to communicate their unique stories and promote themselves."
With skills in professional writing and editing, marketing, history and heritage and event management, she is ready to welcome new opportunities.
