I moved to a small town about 2 years ago. I was nervous with the move that everyone in town would know everyone’s business and I would find that really over whelming. I know its the quintessential fear of small town living, and the anonymity a criticism of big city living but it fueled my apprehension nonetheless. 2 years on and I can honestly say that its all true. Everyone in town knows everyone’s business! But the interesting thing is that I like it! People know when you’re having a hard time and tend to help out or offer a hand. Conversely if things are going well, there are people to celebrate with.
And celebrate I will when I was introduced to Ewan McEoin, of The Locavore Edition and The Field Institute fame earlier this week. Ewan has worked on the Fair Food Documentary with the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance whom we featured earlier this week. Ewan has been amazingly supportive of the Reclaim the Curb’s competition and in such a short week has offered an amazing suite of prizes to add to our increasing pile!
The Field Institute is a design-led research, communications and strategy office with a focus on food, growing, harvesting, cooking, sharing, eating food! The Field Institute has a range of projects including the very popular Locavore Editions (which they are working on the Tasmanian one right now … submission still open!), The Fair Food Documentary, Food Strategy Research Projects, Workshops and Exhibitions.
And for the prize pile .. From Ewan and the amazing team at The Field Institute we have ..

A big thanks for the support from Ewan and the Field Institute team. We look forward to watching your research grow!
