A sucky start but a fabulous finish. This was our week on The Farm.
A break in to begin – we are still shaking our heads (as is the majority of the community) as to why some numnut would take the time to break in, release the animals knowing full well they would get into the veggie gardens and eat everything in sight – tip over the portaloo and bins, break windows, turn on taps – knowing they would flood the garden – they maybe didn’t know it would then flood the storerooms and food hub – and pull out SO MANY plants. We are still waiting to see if the front garden was in fact covered in chemicals.
However, the response from the community has been wonderful. So many donations of plants, so many kind words for our work, so many in disbelief that someone would do such a thing. We are loving our community for knowing that planting plants is good for the soul.
The fabulous finish was threefold – the above mentioned community support. Some fabulous work placement students from Burnie High flexing their muscles to mulch for hours and hours AND a visit from the Kinder class at Cooee Primary. These tiny energetic, questioning, enthusiastic, scrumptious dynamos were just the tonic we needed!
Grow, gather, give and love the one you’re with xx
