Last Sunday, I walked past Wenty Community Garden and saw a person furiously digging away and watering her plants. Her name was Sabena and she happened to be a member.
I was told that Wentworthville aka Wenty Community Garden was started as an endeavour to bring community people from different walks of life and cultures together. Sabena said that it was a brilliant move and has worked well. "It is indeed a community get together,where there are people from all cultural backgrounds, so it won't be far fetched to call it a melting pot" said Sabena. It is open to residents of Wentworthville and surrounding areas. The garden is open on weekends and Wednesday afternoons, I was told.
Sabena said she has been a member for two years now and she enjoys gardening. More so, because the people are welcoming and helpful. She has grown different varieties of lettuce, chilli and tomatoes. Also, there are certain areas from where the members can pick other veggies. Due to the Indian members, there were lots of curry leaves to be seen.
Nothing better than growing you own organic veggies and eating it.You will pay an arm and a leg in the organic markets. The garden has a serene and healthy look about it and a bit of exercise on the weekends won't hurt.
If any of you live in the vicinity, do check it out and more information on joining can be found on the website.
