I am a proud Queenslander and our State is famous for its races – horses, dogs, the trots….as well as cane toads, crayfish, camels………and of course worms.
When it came to deciding what event to cover for this challenge, it was easy! The Perseverance Cup (a worm race) was the way to go. The event began 28 years ago in the old timber town of Crow’s Nest, just north of my home town Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia.
The Cup has become the key ingredient to the success of the annual Crow’s Nest Day – a family friendly fun day to bring a community together, to allow local groups to raise funds and to showcase the area. Why worms you may ask? Every gardener knows that if you have worms in the soil, you have the balance right – moisture, fertilizers, compost.
Crow’s Nesters are proud of their clean, green district and also have a couple of worm farms supplying everyone from gardeners to fishers in the local waterways. So when it came to choosing a racing animal, it had to be racing worms.
Further information about the Perseverance Cup can be found at crowsnestfestival.com.au . I encourage you to visit my blog, christiemoments.com for full coverage of the event including extended interviews with the trainer, worms, the full worm race and more.
