Project: Mitchell Street Veggie Garden


Creative Suburbs are at it again, this time they are reclaiming the curb! If you are inspired by this amazing non-wintery weather we are enjoying in Melbourne at the moment and keen to get your hands in some dirt well this is for you. This Sunday August 4th a vegie patch will be built on Mitchell Street, Brunswick.

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.
