It was a beautiful weekend here in Sydney, probably the first one this spring where it really felt like summer is almonst here. Sunny, breezy and ideal for spending time outdoors.
We headed here on Saturday to celebrate National Recycling Week and had a lovely time making some eco-crafts, taking part in a tai chi class, marvelling at little “compost creating” creatures (aka worms) and learning about a project for a community garden.
It all made me think about how amazing community is, especially for the little ones. How even a small one-day event like this can go such a long way in creating a sense of community. Getting to know the people you share your neighbourhood with, learning about their skills and cultural background and even swapping goods.
Here are some links to sites with useful information on greening our communities:
