I love life and enjoy it to the max, especially getting out and about, writing, taking zany art photos and playing my mandolin.
Event:
Calling all seniors to come along to a free morning tea
A Have-a-Go-Week Activity, Morning Tea with a talk by garden guru and a free gift.



As part of COTA Seniors' Week sponsored by Government Communities and WA Lotteries, the Belmont Community Growers' Association is holding a Free Morning Tea on Sunday, 11th of November from 10.30 am to 12.00 pm in Room 4 at the Rivervale Community Centre and in the outdoor area and garden behind the centre, which is located on the corner of Francisco and Surrey Streets in Rivervale.

Belmont Community Growers meet for free morning tea, talk and gift plus tour of the garden behind the facility
All seniors welcome to the Rivervale Community Centre room 4 and in the Garden behind in Wilson Park for Free Morning tea


Seniors will be able to look at the garden planted and maintained by the members of the group who get together once a month to tend the garden and who call in whenever they wish to take herbs and veggies from the garden.



As well as looking at the greenery, visitors will be able to wander around Wilson Park and see the decorated tree and the little library built by members of the Belmont Men's Shed.

Expert Horticulturalist, Sandra Maynard will be giving a talk on the nutritional, budgetary and social benefits of belonging to a communal garden with herbs and vegetables all grown without harsh chemicals or fertilisers.

As well as a delicious morning tea, with plenty of goodies, hopefully with some fresh herbs from the garden, each senior will be presented with a gift from the garden to take home.

The COTA Seniors Week, sponsored by Lotterywest and Government of Western Australia Department of Communities is designed to give all seniors from all walks of life a chance to engage in various activities and pursue different interests as part of appreciation for their involvement in making and building communities over their lifetimes, both in terms of involvement in the society in which they live as well as their communal interaction and work in a volunteer capacity.

Register your interest by Friday 9th of November by emailing hortitalk@bigpond.com
