Great Minds Think Alike

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!

About Juliette

When Juliette was little, she came home from school and asked her mum in her little teary voice why the other kids at school didn’t like her. Her mum reassured her and said 'Don't worry Juliette, you're just different. That's all.' Since then, aware of her obvious difference to everyone else, Juliette is spending her time doing exactly what people wish to be doing – exactly what she wants. This blog is a celebration of taking a deep breath and just doing it. Currently Juliette can be found sipping tea and gardening somewhere in Central Victoria, Australia with her beloved and their excitable boys. She is also completing her PhD in Civic Agriculture and teaches at RMIT in Sustainable Consumption and Design Activism.
