Veg Out community gardens, Melbourne
]The philosophy. Note the final line “Gardening is an act of faith in the future”. How wonderfully articulated is that?
Veg Out is that it’s a place where friends, families and community groups can share seedlings, gardening tips and life stories. This modest community garden encourages people to work together, on little projects and giant ones. It also reminds us that growing our own food makes us more confident, self-sufficient, and wonderful human beings.
Lenny says, “I always worked hard, so what am I going to do now? Sit in my flat and watch the television? I’d rather be out here in the garden, there’s always someone to talk to, something to do, I love it.”
