As part of our mission we want to help promote and participate in the 5 R’s of waste reduction
  • Refuse – where possible our pantry is aiming to supply all foods, beverages and household cleaning and bathing products in bulk to eliminate unnecessary packaging and bottling. In the cafe, paper straws will only be available for customers who need them and we will offer a 10% discount on cups of coffee purchased using your own take away cup.
  • Reduce waste – by supplying in bulk we hope to eliminate the need for single use packaging and we encourage you to purchase as little or as much as you need, as you need it.
  • Reuse – we encourage you to bring your own containers or purchase the reusable bulk food bags (made from recycled plastic drink bottles) we have available.
  • Repurpose – wash and reuse your bottles/jars/containers/bags etc for next time you visit OR turn them into something else. E.g. Jars make fun drinking glasses and vases.
  • Recycle what you can’t use in the correct bins at home or join the Share Waste campaign in your neighbourhood to share your food scraps and paper waste with local compost bins and worm farms.

About hummingbirds natural pantry and cafe boonah

THE HUMMINGBIRDS TEAM

Hello, I’m Tilly and together with my husband Mark, we own Hummingbirds Natural Pantry & Cafe. We are warmly referred to as “blow ins”, having landed into God’s own Scenic Rim country from Brisbane at the start of 2016. We have five adult children living independently so we decided to try something new, to downsize and to embrace new adventures and a whole new lifestyle. Hummingbirds Natural Pantry & Cafe is a natural extension of the things that we love and want to share with this wonderful community and its visitors.

While Mark can be found in the office managing the finances (and taking care of ‘business’) I am out the front managing the retail section of our beautiful shop. As a former health professional, and as a wife and mother and all round lover of life, I have a very keen interest in pro-active health behaviours that not only nurture and nourish humans from the inside out but also help protect and heal our environment from the outside in.

Since moving to Boonah we have had the time and pleasure to meet so many lovely and interesting people who share a common love of living simply and living well and who also want to preserve this beautiful planet. Opening our bulk pantry & cafe is hopefully an encouragement to everyone who passes through to consider how they too can feel better and more energised but also how they can contribute to the wellbeing of the environment as well. I do hope you find a few of my favourite things to be just what you are looking for too. And if you are not sure what they are please ask me.

And hello I’m Erin and I am the Kitchen Manager of Hummingbirds Natural Pantry & Cafe. As a mother of two young daughters, my interest in health full living and especially wholefood cooking began when my eldest daughter developed eczema on her face. After trying a number of external remedies that were not working I decided to change what she ate. For her this started with gluten free foods, and within a week her rash disappeared. This encouraged me to rethink how my family ate but also got me interested in the idea that gut health is paramount to our general health and wellbeing.

In 2012 I found an opportunity to take over a little health food shop and I soon found myself as a busy mum running a busy health food shop and later a cafe. Despite my steep learning curve when I entered the food industry, it became very clear to me that the world of cooking and creating delicious and nutritious whole foods is my passion. It’s become my dream job.  It’s exciting!  I want everyone to be able to enjoy health full food. I cater especially for paleo, vegan, vegetarian, and dairy free, gluten free and raw eaters to be able to come in and love and enjoy what they eat.  But I want to encourage all of our customers to know that even in our busy, fast paced and often stressful lives eating healthy is not hard, certainly not tasteless and definitely worthwhile.

 

Between us we have a great many plans for Hummingbirds as it grows and we look forward to welcoming you into the nest!
