    Using Cadaghi Corymbia as a substrate

    Hi All I've recently chopped down a few Cadaghi Corymbia in my front yard, was interested in creating a log pile. Has anyone ever done this or have any advice? I've done a little online searching and have come across one promising article from the ABC where they used Blue Gums to grow Shitake see below http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2014-06-17/vch-growing-shitake/5528804

  12. Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe An excellent work that targets the long taught belief that Aboriginal culture is essentially nomadic and as such lacked any understandings of agriculture or of animal farming. Highlights include an argument for a vast inland native grain belt that was actually more extensive than Australia's current grain belt, as well as perhaps the most comprehensive current account of the sophisticated fish traps that were constructed leading us to newly appreciate the extent of the proficient Aquaculture techniques that the Aboriginals possessed. Most importantly, Pascoe's book led me to consider what would happen if the image of the witchetty grub, which is undoubtedly the image that most quickly comes to mind when the average Australian is asked about traditional aboriginal foods, what would happen if we took that image, so bizarre and alien and grotesque when you truly consider it, and replaced it with an image of fields of native millet or barely grass, interspersed with carefully tended mounds of yams, or with fresh fish and eels cooking on an open fire?
  13. I've been on here for awhile, and haven't contributed much. After a few years of interest i fear i still don't have the skills to be able to offer much advice however, i can do book reviews. and so i shall contribute a few if that's alright. The research in Tastes of Paradise is solid, and this book is jam-packed with cool historical images of the stimulants and intoxicants described. But the great interest of this book lies in the more broad-reaching comments the author provides on the changing roles drugs play within a range of European cultures over time. These can be quite thought-provoking and insightful such as the contrast Schivelbusch provides between the place of coffee as a Protestant drug and chocolate as a Catholic drug. The connection between Protestantism and coffee is nothing really new, and not very radical to make, but the contrast the author establishes between coffee and the role of chocolate in Catholic cultures was, at least for me, a new perspective that i found quite interesting to entertain. One good example of the importance of chocolate for Catholic countries lies in the nutritional richness that chocolate provides whilst still being consumed as a liquid. As such it allowed Catholic communities to imbibe without breaking their religiously ordained fasting periods, such as Lent. Fascinating. https://www.goodreads.com/book/photo/141602.Tastes_of_Paradise
