The Competition Begins, Again


To dreamers everywhere who are hoping for a better world, where food grows abundantly, land is not forgotten, and projects are supported. We live in interesting times where self interest, greed and individual gain reigns even from the organizational bodies which were established to serve us. But this description is not prescriptive of everyone. There are people who spend their time trying to make this world a better place, a world where dreamers like you can open your eyes and be inspired by what’s around you.

These dream makers have banded together to bring you the second annual competition to create Australia’s most edible curb*.

The competition opens today, and will close on Friday May 30th. Over the next 3 months I will introduce you to the dream makers from across Australia that have donated their time, skills, experience, products, networks and love to make this happen. What began last year as a competition with 3 winners has grown, grown and grown. The support for this project from the dream makers has been unprecedented. 3 winners just won’t cut it .. I’m hoping for a winner from every state.

Your support is as ever appreciated for spreading the word. So getting talking to your neighbours, friends and family. Spot out that space that is ripe for growing food and friends. And watch this blog for updates.

Thank you for helping make this happen for the second year.


*this is the competition title carried over from last year, but due to the recent cut in government funding and the broader reach of the competition this year, applicants can include any form of public land that they wish to turn into productive spaces.

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.
