 Friends of the Earth¹s Sustainable Food and Agriculture Quilt Project

 With the coldest Adelaide winter in years, now is the time to get quilting. We¹re making a quilt to illustrate and celebrate the many visions of a just and sustainable food system, and we would love your contribution!

Like a landscape that feeds its community from a patchwork of farms and wild places, the quilt highlights the diversity of ideas, strategies and projects that make up a sustainable food system, and when completed will be exhibited, used to teach about the food system we need, and may even be entered in the Royal Adelaide Show!

Wherever you are, we invite you to embroider, print, patch, appliqué, sew, stitch your vision for a just and sustainable food system. It might be something specific (like worm farms, or compost bins, or fruit trees planted in the streets, or rooftop gardens, or farmers¹ markets, or heirloom seeds) or general (like stronger communities, or thriving local economies, or diverse polycultural farms, or food sovereignty, or fair trade) or a project you¹re already involved with. Use pictures, use words, use whatever you like (provided it can all be sewn together in the end!)

 Squares should be 30cm x 30 cm, with a 3 cm border all the way around (so the area for your image is 24 x 24 cm). Feel free to use your own fabric, or contact us if you would like to be sent fabric to get you started.

 Submissions are due Friday 20 January 2011, but sooner is always welcome.

Please contact us at sophie.green@foe.org.au, or leave a message at (08) 8211 6872 to register your interest.

  1. Hello, I’m just passing on a message from Bradley at South Henley Hardware – he is trying to get a little edibles nursery going there – at any rate he has fruit trees going for 25% off right now! so if you’re in the market for one go and check it out!
