Elizabeth from Bellfield Community Garden introduced her talk by explaining her reasons for becoming involved in Bellfield Community Gardens. Essentially, she and her family were interested in growing their own food and getting their young family to understand and be involved in this too. She said the process required quite a bit of trial and error although other members of the community are very keen to share their expertise. The other aspect of the garden is the sense of community that this engenders. Elizabeth donated some seeds and a tomato plant for us to put into our new herb and vegetable patch in the Ryder-Cheshire gardens. She has challenged us to care for and watch the new additions grow and when fully mature send her some photos of our flourishing garden. As usual a delicious afternoon tea was provided by the ladies from Alphington CWA. Out taste buds were duly tickled.
