Food is Free Day – Sunday 1 MarchThe Food is Free Project is taking Australia by storm! Inspired by Food is Free Bendigo (thanks guys!) we’re having a special day to encourage food sharing on Sunday, 1st March. You can put spare produce out the front of your homes in a bucket or box with a sign ‘Food is Free’ OR come to the Pondage and drop off your spare fruit & veggies at our central drop off/collection point. There’s no need to donate in order to collect some beautiful fresh food for your family. It’s a ‘Take what you need, and leave what you don’t’ system. A great way to meet your neighbours, connect to others in our community and share excess produce. If you’re popping things out the front of your place, post on our Facebook page here to advise your house is participating and welcome others. We’d love to see you on Sunday 1st March at the Pondage!

Originally from sugar cane farming in North Queensland, one of six kids with parents who always grew their own food. During my years at the bank in Sydney as Sustainability Work Stream Leader I was charged with researching sustainability issues and helping the staff in our department learn how to reduce their impact on the world; at the office, in the home, and garden. I gathered knowledge on consumption, waste and procurement dependance and implemented learnings for our staff that was a real eye opener for everyone. Our reliance on natural resources and vast international systems to entertain, feed, and clothe us makes us vulnerable, and though our collective attitude in decades' past to consumption and waste is slowly changing, more needs to be done to increase our grass roots resilience and self-reliance, both personally and in our communities. We're igniting a local movement towards greater self-reliance, food security, good health, collaboration, sharing of skills, ideas, hard work and laughs. I love growing organic heirloom vegetables and living as chemically free as possible. When we garden we truly find ourselves and each other.
