The Field Institute Supporting

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 ..

For NSW ..
5 x NSW Guides
For Victoria ..
10 x Vic Guides
1 x Double pass to workshop after end May.

For Tasmania ..

5 x Tote bags (I’m sorry the guide isn’t out til September but the bags are very sweet!)

 

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

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.

  1. Hey, love your site – sorry to see it hasn’t been updated lately.

    Just a heads up that the Locavore Edition website is no more 😦 Not sure whether you can still get your hands on a copy of the book or not.

    If it’s of any interest, I run a website for local eaters in the Ballarat region (http://eatlocalballarat.com/) which might be helpful to some of your readers. It covers all aspects of local eating, from homegrown veg and community gardens, to local gourmet producers and restaurants, and everything in between.
