LHC 2020 Participants (17)

Airlie (Randwick, NSW)

Why I'm doing it: Food waste and habits seem to be an area where I can really improve 'doing my bit' and I am excited to have support and resources to help me on my way !

My radius: Within My State

My Challenge: Meal-sized (14+ things)

Domenica Liberti (Chiswick, NSW)

Why I'm doing it: I want to create a new healthy eating habit for me and my family. I want to switch to whole local ingredients, to minimize waste, to help local growers, to eat healthy food, and to be more connected to our community.

My radius: 100 Mile Trial (Within 160km)

My Challenge: Feast-sized (only locally and sustainably produced food)

Emma (Maribrynong, VIC)

Why I'm doing it: 2 months ago I changed our families diet to additive free... no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. It has been a fantastic change for the better, this is the next step.

George W (Bridgewater, SA)

Why I'm doing it: I dabble with buying and eating local produce but I never stick with it. I always revert to prepackaged food from large retail chains when I am short of time or out of habit. I want to stop this.

Josh Viljoen (Dee Why, NSW)

Why I'm doing it: I am doing the challenge because I feel completely disconnected from the processes behind my food, who grew it, who transported it and therefore felt no guilt in wasting it (until now). I'd like to learn about how I can engage others in supporting localised organic farming and a challenge seems to be an excellent place to start!

My Blog

Sally Nansen (Spotswood, VIC)

Why I'm doing it: In a pandemic it is perhaps rare to relate good news. Nevertheless, what I share here is the result of the current situation. Our family, finding ourselves in Stage 3 and now Stage 4 Lockdown in Melbourne, has been deprived of certain systems we neither admired or happily adhered to anyway in easier times. As the old scaffolding dismantled we discovered space to reconsider the direction of our lives and a desire to take more intentional control. One result has been what we call our ‘Milk Shop’.
