Happiness dwells in the...soil. The secret to being happy is brown and dirty! (free workshop)

"Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the...soil?" Democritus 
Well apparently Democritus said 'soul' but I reckon that quote works just as well if you swap 'soul' for 'soil' don't you?

We're working together for a vibrant, sustainable network of community gardening locations in Moreland.

Our a 100% volunteer-based non-profit community group currently manages two community gardens in West Brunswick and Pentridge a food forest (also in West Brunswick).

Stop and think for 1 minute and you'll come up with at least one good reason for having community gardens all over the place. In case you don't have a minute or need some help, here are our top five!
  1. To bring people together.
  2. To hold on to Moreland's character and gardening knowledge.
  3. To provide somewhere where people can do some physical activity, relax and enjoy themselves
  4. To encourage sustainable gardening
  5. To make it easy for people to get hold of healthy locally grown food
