Local Sprouts chatted with Colly Galbiati from Soma Organics for her take on local!
LS: Where is your local community and what do you love about it?
SO: Our business is based in Oatley and we love the family atmosphere, the village-style shopping ‘main street’ (the typical butcher who knows your first name), and the tree-lined drive.
LS: If you were showing someone from out of town around your local area, where would you take them?
SO: The Oatley to Como walk over the bridge – or a run if they were feeling up to it! (a cool 10km from Oatley to Oyster Bay and back – well worth it for the scenery).
LS: What does ‘local’ mean to you?
SO: Community atmosphere, working together for a greater purpose, relying on one and another and becoming familiar with who your neighbours and fellow community members are in order to live a comfortable and safe life.
LS: Hidden local gem?
SO: A homeware and café store called Edmonds and Greer in Oatley West – browse cookbooks and candles while sipping a luscious hot choccy… and they offer super luxe blankets when dining el fresco on the chillier days.
LS: Local person, cultural or food experience Local Sprouts should seek out?
SO: For a gluten free food experience and gourmet food shop, Scrummies is a must – along with a Tobys Estate coffee and gigantic GF muffin – homemade decadency and they always have a fabulous playlist on!
