It's Official

Yes, we can celebrate that Richmond Valley Council has approved 'The Hive - A Mid Richmond Community Garden'.  Thank you Clayton for all of your patience and hard-work; now lets get to it on Sunday 16 February 2014, 8am - 11am and start digging in the earth and planting the seeds.  Everyone welcome! Wear some comfy clothes and a hat and bring along whatever you feel might help get us started on our community garden project 'THE HIVE'.  The writer intends making a celebration cake!

Here is a little poem about gardens:


Gardens are more than
hooded flowers, tempting fruits
and living trees.
They are the birds
that sing and fly in them,
the wing-eyed butterflies,
the golden bees.
They include the sky
with sun and moon and stars,
the rain and snow;
they are the earth
with captured light from heaven
where plants and people grow.
A garden is a universe
that whispers soft and vernal,
“As it is above, so it is below.”

Waking, blooming, sleeping,
waking up again,
gardens are eternal:
they teach us all we need to know.
