The Growing Food Project

Its not surprise to the regular readers of this blog that there is a growing energy around local communities responding to food access, security and resilience issues. What’s more is that there are some amazing projects emerging that are aiming to address this problem. The Growing Food Project is one of these projects, but instead of tackling the physical problem of reconnecting people with their own food, it documents the movement in itself. culture.

The Growing Food Project is a documentary exploring some of Melbourne’s urban agriculture practices and alternative food systems, particularly those existing in the city’s inner north. By documenting and telling these amazing stories, this short film will capture the possibilities and practical solutions that lie in people’s hands & strengthen our local food system.

This has been an ambitious labor of love for a few melbournites over the summer months but now it is time for some read action .. and they are out raising some funds for some help. So should you wish to help out this project then head over here to watch the short and donate via the pozzible campaign.

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.
