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!

Prem (NSW)

Why I'm doing it: I Like Home Gardening

My radius: On My Bike (25 kms)

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’.

SamuelNeari (Cairo, QLD)

Why I'm doing it: (派对) 本来就是“宴会、聚会”的意思,从词义上和咱们的聚餐没有本质上的区别。 西方的派对和咱们聚餐之间的共同点都是为了聚会、交流和快乐,区别还是在于习俗和文化上。 西方的派对,一般都有明确的主题,生日派对、庆功派对、节日派对、宗教派对、党派派对、外交派对、私人派对、开放派对,甚至葬礼也有派对。 咱们的聚会更是司空见惯,除了上述的西方派对主题之外,咱们中国人请客吃饭可以有主题,也可以不需要主题,就是楞聚餐������,有闲有钱即可������。 从文化的视角来看,西方的派对以娱乐和社交为主要特征,不管什么主题,派对一般具有更加灵活的组织方式和形式,可以在公寓,也可以在大厅,可以在门前草坪,也可以在荒郊野地,既可以围坐餐桌,也可以烧烤自助,有些各种聊天和讨论,还常有不少娱乐小游戏和舞会助兴 https://green.xxxwww1.com 主页 183bc74
