Since February 2013, I have been developing a promising and exciting project "Shepparton Food Hub" in collaboration with the City of Greater Shepparton and Pollen Studio (landscape architecture firm).  The vision at Council is forward thinking and they are very keen to make some special projects around local food systems happen in their community.

Reclaiming the Curb?! Do you have a site to work on?

Dear All ,

This is a call out from Libertas Food Gardens, Melbourne Roof Top Honey and Reclaim the Curb: We think it is possible to create a nicer, healthier and an ecologically sound urban environment for us to live in and our children to grow up in. We are offering our services to anyone wanting to green up public land.

It was quite phenomenal to see the transformation of the Herbert Street Street Curb on Sunday. A great group of people came together and made the block look really beautiful. Thank you to Reclaim the Curb and Libertas Food Gardens for supporting the project.
