We have entered a pretty exciting point in the Reclaim the Curb competition today – 4 weeks to go before we get to award all of these amazing prizes and enable self organising communities across several states in Australia to turn under used public land into productive commons. Its getting pretty exciting!
There are a few things planned to ramp up the competition towards the end, so stay tuned to this blog and the facebook page for updates… And today, I get to announce a really exciting supporter, another urban agriculture royalty the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance.
If you haven’t heard of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance…. its time to get you up to speed! This group of proactive, determined, informed, and empowered individuals working away conscientiously together towards a food system where people have the opportunity to choose, create and manage their own food supply. They are not motivated by fame or fortune but rather quietly work away to make sure our food system is the way it should be.
Their work has included the national campaign around The People’s Food Plan and Fair Food Week.
So I am super excited to announce the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance’s support of the Reclaim the Curb competition. They will be awarding the winners from each state (Tas, Vic, NSW) ..
– Bound copies of the Peoples Food Plan
– DVDs of Fair Food, Australia’s first feature length documentary (release date expected to be September this year)
– Free one-year memberships of AFSA (as a group = $100; as individuals – $25 x number of individuals)
What a prize. A big thankyou to the AFSA, in particular Nick Rose who has been doing amazing work for this organisation and the greater fair food movement. Also a big thankyou to Ewan McEoin from The Locavore Edition for an outstanding job pulling together all the filming and production.
