Project: The World’s Most Famous Front Yard Garden … apparently!

I stumbled across this the other day, they have called it ‘The World’s most Famous Front Yard Garden‘! I big bold claim sure, but wait til you see the vegie patch .. its pretty incredible. The couple that grows their food here produces between 80-90% of their vegie and fruit needs annually. Pretty incredible for a space that doesn’t seem that big.

Despite the obvious beauty of this site, local councils have not been impressed with people deciding to grow food on their front lawns… it makes you wonder doesn’t it. And in Canada of all places!

Check out this short doco about these amazing individuals who have turned around their lives, waist lines, and community to grown on their curb.

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.
