A KALE bunch a day keeps the doctor away according to Bangalow Naturopath Jules Galloway - and she wants to show others where to source the freshest food "medicine" locally.

Ms Galloway is to launch the first of her Farm to Table raw food tours this Sunday when she will take participants to her favourite local roadside stalls, pick the day's seasonal produce and then show them how to prepare a raw food feast.

"I shop from our local roadside food stalls every week," Ms Galloway said.

"The farmers are friendly; the produce is the freshest - usually picked that morning - and half the fun is getting there.

"My passion is healthy, whole food and I want people to learn what is in season and how to prepare produce that is organic and spray-free."

The tour, starting at Broken Head Hall, will take in many of the food stalls along Broken Head Rd and the surrounding area and will include talks with farmers.

Organic farmer Nick Hatherly said he was noticing an increase in visits to his Broken Head Rd stall which sells greens, tomatoes and citrus since he took over the 2.4ha farm four years ago.

"There's a greater awareness about where food comes from and interest in who the grower is," Mr Hatherly said.

"We live in a food bowl here in the Northern Rivers, and people can get to know what is in season."

Since the produce on offer at the stalls is seasonal, the dishes prepared will be a mystery, Ms Galloway said.

"We have a raw food chef, Kisane Appleby, teaching us and it will be part surprise chef," she said.

"I want to show people that you can make something amazing from what

ever you find," she said.

The tour is on Sunday, November 10 from 10-3pm. Bookings at julesgalloway.com
