Urban Farming Tasmania Supports

I know I say this at almost every announcement but I am constantly blown away on how this competition is growing. This week there is a stellar line up of supporters with more offers filling my inbox. This is just great!

So today, the Urban Farming Tasmania collective is on board to support the Reclaim the Curb competition. Urban Farming Tasmania builds stronger communities through growing, collecting and sharing fruit and vegetables. I’m quite in love with their motto (and that they even have one!) which is:

Grow a garden, build community share the excess, save seeds and feed the future

How succinct! And I love how heavily it crosses over with what the Reclaim the Curb project endeavours to do – not to mention all the groups that are supporting this competition.

 

Despite being only a year old, Urban Farming Tasmania has established a sure following and momentum behind its projects which includes, the Tassivore Challenges, Share Markets, Seed Bank, Fruit Tree Planting, Community Harvesting, Permaculture Courses, Community Composting and a public fruit map! Pheew what a busy group of people. Believe it or not, I’ve even left off a few projects too!

Thank you so much to Urban Farming Tasmania with their support, they will be donating seed packs to the winners in Tassie. Amazing!

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.
