And then it was done …

At 5pm this afternoon the competition which we have been running for the past 2 months is coming to a close. Thankyou so much to all those people who have submitted entries, the sponsors who have donated cash, fruit trees and knowledge and of course all the people who supported this blog. Its been quite a journey, one that we are sure to repeat next year, where I will be prepared for the 200 odd people to read the blog every week!

When this competition was first launched I was prepared for the interest but not the passion. I have been blown away with how many people are whole heartedly dedicated to reclaiming their curbs – and for that I will always be inspired by.

So what now? Well all the entries will be screened to make sure they meet all of the requirements, then the judges will have a read of all of them. On Friday 12th June I will announce the 3 winners. Easy.

Of course blogging here will continue with exciting interviews with food activists and project profiles. Also be sure to like us on Facebook as I post there a larger selection of curated content from the web about public food.

Thankyou again!

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.
