A new addition for Nash Street

Lucas from Libertas Gardens has created a new addition for the Nash Street nature strip, check out this amazing structure to facilitate backyard produce swapping for the neighbourhood. Outstanding!!

In Lucas’ words:

Using mostly reclaimed or salvaged materials (except for the screws…) this little structure will keep the produce out of the sun in summer and out of the rain in winter.

A little troley/modified wheel barrow (yet to be built…) will be used to collect the fresh fruits and veggies around the area.

A neighbour donated an old hardwood fence, another one donated the tin used for the roof and yet another one offered some guttering to collect rain from the tin roof!

While we were working on it, someone wise said this:

“If the green revolution does happen, it will happen one city block at a time. It will happen with groups of residents organising themselves around food security, fresh and healthy produce.”

Well then, this is a step forward!

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.
