A living art installation filled the sands along Goolwa Beach last month to promote sustainable harvest and celebrate the significance of the Pipi across the region. A Harvest for our Future was the work of the United Nations Association of Australia SA division, in partnership with Cittaslow Goolwa.

The event, held on Sunday, April 29, was in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Cittaslow Goolwa’s ‘slow food’ charter and principles.

Artist Andrew Baines, famous for his ‘Surreal Human Sculptures’ photo shoots, met a gathering of about 30 locals at Goolwa Beach, where in black suits and dinner attire, they were photographed by drone and on land, foraging the famous pipis.

Staff of Goolwa Pipi Co. were on hand to ensure the ‘cockle shuffle’ was executed with respect to the shell fish. Following the shoot, South Australian chefs, Cheong Liew and Andy Clappis, joined Cittaslow representatives Olaf Hansen, Vanessa Button and Debbie Smith, to prepare a pipi inspired lunch at Signal Point Goolwa.
