    We're developing an innovative and unique urban farm in Jacksonville, Florida. Utilizing aeroponic technology will allow us to grow exotic produce locally, efficiently, with clean and sustainable methods. Our focus on keeping cost down while elevating the quality of produce will allow us to duplicate our farms to not just more areas throughout Jacksonville, but to reach out to other cities throughout the U.S. Promoting sustainable farming and local businesses will help educate the public on ways to increase our productivity without overburdening our natural resources. Help us achiever our vision for a safer, cleaner, healthier future by voting and donating to our project: Sustainable Table. Visit www.onespark.com and vote for our project #21881. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in your neck of the woods.

      Tim Silverwood is an ordinary guy; a keen surfer who found himself at the forefront of a global movement. An environmentalist and plastic pollution spokesperson, Tim is dedicated to spreading awareness of the dangers plastic pose to our marine life, wild life, as well as to our own health. Tim is on board our Give a Fork! campaign this year as an ambassador: “I love the Give a Fork! campaign because it gives everyday people the opportunity to learn about key environmental issues with their friends and peers in a fun, relaxed and tasty setting. With so many environmental issues on the public agenda it’s easy for people to get overwhelmed or to miss key information. I’m excited that this year, Sustainable Table are bringing the issue of waste to dining tables around Australia. It’s an issue I’ve been working on for a long time and one that needs our urgent attention. Our planet is suffering the effects of a waste crisis. We’re running out of landfill space, polluting our oceans and skies, devastating the biosphere, wasting precious resources and rapidly decreasing the life expectancy of our species. If we’re serious about sustainability, it starts with drastically reducing waste.” Give a Fork! is an annual campaign, held in October each year, aimed at bringing about positive change through the food we eat. Give a Fork! is your chance to do something great for the environment, Aussie farmers and farm animals. Every year, the theme changes. Last year the focus was on sustainable seafood. This year it’s food and packaging waste. Put on a waste-free meal for your mates during October and show the people in your world that reducing waste in our homes is easy to do. Ask your mates to purchase tickets to your event which in turn serves as a tax-deductible donation to Sustainable Table's Awareness and Education Program. See more at http://giveafork.com.au/.

        Food and packaging waste is not simply something that ‘goes away’ when we pop it in the rubbish bin for collection by our garbos. Waste has an insidious, long-term impact on our environment, our wildlife and ultimately our own health. But how do we avoid it? In an age of excess consumption and a mindset of convenience-at-all-cost, is it possible to truly be waste free? Delve into the world of waste and zero waste living with our online short documentary, Waste Deep. The free-to-watch documentary shows how food and plastic waste can be avoided, drawing attention to much of the unnecessary packaging that is choking our lives, oceans and animals. It also gives an insight into the environmental and social impacts of our wasteful ways. The film features some pretty rad people such as environmentalist and keen surfer Tim Silverwood, blogger, author and TV presenter Sarah Wilson and exuberant host of ABC's Gardening Australia, Costa Georgiadis. We couldn't have done this without the generosity of the aforementioned folk, as well as the special people below: Mathery Studios, our supremely talented videographers. Jack Johnson and All At Once, for selecting us as one of their supported charities and matching donations made to our Pozible campaign up to $2,500USD. And these incredible organisations for also featuring their lovely faces: Second Bite Take 3 Port Phillip Council Spade & Barrow Buy Nothing New Month A special mention is also warranted of all of the generous people who supported our Pozible campaign, we are eternally grateful and could not have created this documentary without you.

              Here’s your chance to make a real difference by joining Sustainable Table in showing that you Give a Fork! about what’s on your plate. Give a Fork! is our inaugural fundraising campaign, with a focus this year on seafood. Australians love spending hot summer days on the beach and there is nothing like a seafood cook up with the crew. But the raw truth is that decades of global mismanagement, overfishing and pollution have reduced many species’ populations to the brink of extinction.

                    This video was played at Sustainable Table's Melbourne Food and Wine festival event 'Are you game?'. The video was showed after dinner and challenges people to think about the ethical and environmental issues of factory farming and why hunting for meat (rabbit) is a more sustainable way to eat meat. If you are going to eat meat you should face the reality of how the animal died. The video starts with a short add by Voiceless featuring Hugo Weaving. Please also watch 'Take a walk on the wild side' to see a real life hunt and skinning of a rabbit.

                      This video was shown as part of Sustainable Table's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event 'Are you game?' to show guests how a rabbit is hunted and skinned in preparation for their meal. Another video 'Meat the issues' was shown later in the evening to contrast factory farming of meat to hunting (pest rabbits) for meat. Which one makes more sense?
