Its funny when people can have the same idea at the same time, independently dreamt up. Well it seems that Reclaiming The Curb is an idea that many people have stumbled over. Its curious to think why then our curbs are still largely unproductive. Perhaps we are all stuck in the waiting place.
Well over the past week I have been totally inspired by people not stuck in the waiting place, but rather out there choosing their own adventure.
The Lemon Tree Project based in Hume City Victoria is a similar project to Reclaim the Curb (with a scarily similar logo type face!) – changing streets, one lemon tree at a time! The lemon tree is a site for neighbours to meet, share and enjoy the wonders of a local lemon. If you are based in this area, get involved! It looks like some stellar work is being done.
Matt and Vanessa from Melbourne Roof Top Honey, have long been an inspiration for me … little did I realise that the feeling was mutual. And so are now on board with Reclaim the Curb to bring their magic to this project. Be sure to watch this space and all the crazy ideas that will cross this site. Now who would like a bee hive out the front of their place? Neighbourhood honey anyone?
Long live wacky ideas, particularly those that move us from the waiting place!
