“Congratulations to all the finalists and thank you to each of the participants. Our community benefits from each of your contributions. We look forward to celebrating our Noosa Biosphere community at the upcoming gala on November 1,” Ms Berkin said.

“The Noosa Biosphere Gala should be a fabulous afternoon of local food, eco fashion and great conversations about our food future with our industry panel. It’s also Matt Golinski’s last day as Executive Chef at View Restaurant, so I encourage anyone who appreciates where their food comes from to join us for this conscious alternative fundraiser during what is traditionally celebrated. like the day of the Melbourne Cup.
