Hey everyone,

Welcome to the winter edition

I have been out spraying my fruit trees with copper oil on these lovely days, I cannot wait to see them grow.

Looking ahead to August (strawberry month), I have painted a pallet and I’m going to grow strawberries – make sure if you do this to put weed mat in the gaps as pallet wood is treated.

We hope you are wrapping up warm. Working in the warmth of a café, having coffee on tap and the scrummy smells all around me is the most pleasant place to be in months like this. (despite what my waistline says to me)

What is going on in the next two months at Terra Viva Café – let me tell you…….

Coffee Supreme is what we live for so we have decided to get in something a little different alongside our normal delicious barista coffee.


We are also selling Coffee Supreme products here – just for you. Come in to enquire and we will order these and more for you:

We are so so pleased to give Roydvale School

$409 from all our High Teas sold between January ‘18 and July ‘18.

($1 of every High Tea, Cream Tea and Afternoon Tea sold

is donated every six months to a community group).

We also donated a scrummy apple tree

to their School garden.

Three very happy school councillors received the cheque

Thanks heaps Roydvale


Our next donation from July 1st – January 1st is going to the Takumi Japanese Drumming Group. They played at ‘Oishi’ our Japanese dinner recently which gave our restaurant an amazing atmosphere. They work so hard and are very talented - so we are very happy to share the same donation we gave Roydvale School.

Takumi is having an annual concert on the 4th August 2018 – I definitely recommend going along. We are!
