Ruth Crow A.M. (1916-1999) believed that when people came together over a cup of tea, they could go on to do great things.
Humanitarian, social activist, environmentalist and visionary, Ruth Crow devoted her lifetime to creating a society that was better for everyone.
Hosted by Arts House to honour the 100th birthday of Ruth Crow, 100 Cuppas was a community tea party during Spring Fling celebrating North Melbourne’s past and future.
Over a freshly brewed cup of Fair Share Fare blended ‘Ruth Crow Tea’*, the public was invited to listen to local storytellers; enjoy baked treats from the first cookbook written by a woman in Australia – baked by the Country Women’s Association of Brunswick; browse items from The Crow Collection, VU Library Research Archives; and imagine a better future with personalised tea readings by 8th generation tasseomancist Annie O’Reilly.

* Blended in Brunswick by McIver’s Coffee & Tea Merchants. 

BUY THE RUTH CROW TEA HERE or CONTACT JEN RAE to facilitate making great things happen with the tea.
