Activism: Fair Food Week

I can’t believe its already here .. but after months of planning Fair Food Week is finally here!!! Starting off next week (19th – 25th August) across Australia a celebration of all things fair about food will be explored, foraged, harvested, shared, cooked, eaten and enjoyed.

What is quite amazing is the shear array of different events on, from sausage making to community feasting to leadership courses to chicken farming to community gardening discussions to local dinners if you have ever wanted to get involved in the civic food movement this is the opportunity of a life time!

Fair Food Week is an initiative of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance – so a big hip hip hurrah to Nick and the team for making this happen.

Be sure to check out the website and facebook pages for full details.

 

PS make a note in the diary, on Monday night  is a Fair Food Feast for all those Melbourne based. This is going to be a great night for all those interested in or involved in the food scene to connect with each other. Its a potluck supper at 60L Green Building, 60 Leicester Street Carlton from 6.30pm. Bring a dish to share. RSVP to Neesh Wray <neesh@westnet.com.au> or 0435 577445

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.
