Food and Housing

Connecting over Fair Food 2022 + Crop Swap

Join us for an inspiring, encouraging and nourishing evening with Clarence Slockee, local speakers, expo stalls and a bustling crop swap!

In a world of growing complexity and uncertainty, we are gathering to explore how we can together build a food system that is more sustainable, stronger and resilient here in the Illawarra.

These complex and systemic challenges require proactive and intersectoral action, but where can we start as a community?

In a conversation guided by local goat herders / cheesemakers Fiona Weir Walmsley and Adam Walmsley from Buena Vista Farm, you will hear from those who are actively working within our food system and explore ideas around building food resilience in our community.

With key note speaker Clarence Slockee

Clarence is a Cudgenburra/Bundjalung Aboriginal man with a long family history of bushmen, farmers and fishermen growing up in the lush Tweed Valley.

Clarence intertwines his love of plants, education, culture, design and the arts into his role as Director of Jiwah. He is a graduate from the National Aboriginal and Islander Skills Development Association (NAISDA) Dance College and has gained experience across a broad range of performance mediums, but his passion remains with his farming roots and ensuring the biodiversity of native species.

Clarence has over 20 years of experience in environmental and cultural education, including roles with the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and more recently as Director and founder of Jiwah, a 100% Aboriginal owned company that delivers a range of collaborative projects including urban native species green space.

For the past 10 years Clarence has been a familiar face on television screens across the nation as a presenter on ABC’s Gardening Australia. With regular segments on the TV series, he continues to educate people about medicinal, cultural and edible native plant species unique to the Australian landscape.

A graduate of UTS Business School, Clarence is currently working with a broad range of collaborators to incorporate Indigenous cultural perspectives into green space urban design.

Community and Connection

Get Online Week

Inclusee are proud to partner with The Good Things Foundation for Get Online Week 2022 from 17 – 23 October.

Get Online Week is an Australia-wide digital inclusion campaign supporting thousands of people to get online safely and confidently. The week-long, annual campaign supports people to improve their digital skills and close the digital divide.

Being digitally included means having affordable access to the internet and the skills and confidence to use it safely. Inclusee offer free Samsung tablets on loan, including sim cards, to empower our older Australians with the tools they need to get connected to our virtual community.

This year’s Get Online Week theme, Try One Thing, encourages people to explore the possibilities of the internet.

We have a jam-packed schedule of events for anyone to join in, including E-Safety, Trivia, Watercolour Painting, and Meditation. I’ve attached the timetable which we encourage you to share with your networks. Get Online Week is open to people over 18 who are interested in volunteering too.

This is the link to register for Inclusee events.
