Community Gardens

Welcome to Eden aka the community garden.

This little green haven has become an incredibly important place to me. It’s where I meditate, play with the dogs, do yoga, jumping jacks, earthing, reading, reiki and plant admiring a few times a week.

I’m so grateful for the peaceful green spaces that give us a beautiful respite from an ever more distressing world. And now I’ve just signed up to be a volunteer at the neighboring City Farmer.

 

I’m excited to be part of the Permaculture movement and have so much to learn about growing things sustainably and organically.

Homemade Vegan Lentil Soup

My little garden is still looking pretty lush. And not wanting to let any of this goodness go to waste, I thought I’d whip up a hearty, tasty soup, using a little bit of everything from my patio garden.
