In 2018, Orange region community faced one the biggest threats to local livelihoods in over three decades, with a bushfire raging out of control on Mount Canobolas in February 2018 just before harvest and vintage in the lead up to the festival. Several of our premium vineyards and farms, as well as livestock and human lives were saved through the dedicated efforts of local volunteer firefighters from the Rural Fire Service (RFS) who fought for three days and nights straight to battle the blaze and control it.

To celebrate and thank these local heroes on the behalf of the entire community, Orange F.O.O.D Week has undertaken a 3-year agreement to provide Festival Night Market food and wine vouchers to all 100 local RFS volunteers. The RFS has also been allocated a free-of-charge stand at the Festival Night Market for the next 3 years to be accessible to locals and help educate the public on the importance of fire safety and how to prepare and protect properties both during and prior to the annual fire season.


Forage was born out of a visit to La Morra in Piedmont Italy in 2006. The town of La Morra in the hills of Piedmonte developed their ‘Mangialonga’ event in 1986. The 4km trail crosses beautiful landscapes which combine with local culinary delicacies to make it an unique event with people coming from all over the world. It is an event not to be missed!

Until now, the publishers have presented methods, booklets, files to work with the reading process from Early Childhood Education with resources that interrelate or combine two or three methods, and this process begins at an early age, either due to family pressure, to achieve excellent results within the educational centers, by the Pisa reports where we present low levels of reading comprehension or because the higher cycles manifest their demands and failures at the lower levels. As Irene Balaguer, president of the Rosa Sensat Association, states: “There is a terrible and enormous pressure to advance the school in the sense of the subjects, of reading and writing, but to advance the formal learning, far from reinforcing their desire to learn, what it does is that they become extremely bored.” Early Childhood Education is presented in the laws of education and in the development of these as a copy of Primary Education, division of content by areas or subjects and the input of various teachers to give such teachings. Learning ceases to be playful without taking into account the interests of the students to become an education structured in schedules, content, and evaluation; where individual work predominates, by means of cards (although it is done in a group way), biasing the child’s curiosity and autonomy. Reading continues to be competence, just see info here that we must acquire in order to learn since students read in various formats: traditional books, electronic books, apps, chat messages, websites, blogs, video game instructions, infographics, and audiovisual images. The generations of yesteryear learned to understand the world through reading in paper books, however, today young people and infants learn to understand the world through technology and virtual realities, as Prensky affirms in Natives and Immigrants Digital .
