I took myself off to Learmonth on a Friday afternoon last month (with wild winds pushing me along) to meet up with the group who have established the Learmonth Community Garden. There under the beautiful aged oak trees were a group of about 20 people who had all come together to celebrate the official opening. Over the past year or so, this group has worked long and hard to turn a dry uninteresting sheep paddock into a beautiful community space complete with a tool shed, raised vegetable gardens,  native plant boarders and some fabulous exotic native trees.

The supporters of Fifteen Trees have helped pay for many of the trees planted in these gardens. In particular, I like to thank Maree and Brian Harrison (Harrison Funerals) for their community kindness.

The launch of the garden was complete with a banner (hanging on the new shed), BBQ, kids, red wine and lots of people rugged up.

Coming into Learmonth from Ballarat, the gardens are on the right (next door to the Anglican Church) on High St.

There is talk of a pizza oven being built – I told them to let me know when it was going to be ‘fired up’. Wood fired pizza and a glass of red and an afternoon in the Learmonth Community Gardens.

I can’t think of much better place to be. Slainte – Colleen PS Thank you to Fon Ryan for the photos.

At the heart of every nunnery is, of course, charity. We love our partnership with the Brigidine Sisters and are impressed with their passion to give. That’s a long history of giving from these remarkable women, and we are not only benefactors of this kindness, as their other philanthropy does ripple out to myriad of other organisations as well.
