Competition Support: Grow Good Food

The Reclaim the Curb competition to create Australia’s most edible curb side ends today at 5pm. So if you are one of those people who is leaving it to the last minute then you might want to start thinking about getting your entry in sooner rather than later…

However we do have some last minute announcements for you. After yesterday’s massive blogging day, Katie Finlay from Grow Great Food contacted me to pledge her support for the competition. She would like to offer a fruit tree to each of the winners and a double pass to one of their workshops. Its all very exciting and I’m delighted to offer this last minute addition to the prize pack.

Grow Great Food is an amazing initiative based in Central Victoria which is an extension of the commercial organic orchard that Katie runs with her beloved, Hugh. Grow Great Food is their educational arm that shares the amazing fruit growing knowledge the pair have developed through growing their own and learning from others. If you have a moment check out the great range of workshops the run both on their orchard in Harcourt and at the Collingwood Children’s Farm. Well worth supporting and learning from to keep your garden growing productively.

Note: the fruit trees will need to be picked up by the finalists from Harcourt, Victoria. If you live outside of Victoria and you are a finalist in the competition, Reclaim the Curb will purchase a fruit tree for you … next year we will work harder to ensure pledges like this are nationally standard.

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.
