Community Garden

Yesterday was the grand opening of our local Community Garden down in the village. It was such a beautiful day, to stroll through the shady forest behind the market, with lots of local feral faeries flittering around.

At the entrance we passed by a bunch of kids playing in a lovely hobbit cubby house.

It was a great day! I really love the community we live in :)


  1. How wonderful! Before DS, I was way in to community gardening. Now we just do a little guerrilla gardening around our condo complex. Hope to get back into it soon. LOVE the herb spiral ... I dream of herb spirals and medicine wheel gardens!!

  2. I have been enjoying reading your blog so much. I have passed along an award so that others can enjoy and be inspired too.

  3. How wonderful people coming together to grow and share food.
    Very interesting place you live..
    Very different from my world.

  4. I love the herb spiral. There is a community garden at Katommba that has a little herb spiral which is raised and tiered. I would love to do something like that in my garden one day (when I get my own place!).

  5. Looks like a wonderful day! How lucky you are to live in such a unique community! Love the tree mural, and the hobit house, very nice!

  6. I love the tree mural, so colourful. I think that I would enjoy the pottery the most. Creating objects with our hands is so rewarding :-)
