Useful and beautiful

In a scruffy corner of a suburban park
something surprising has been happening.

Little by little

with almost no money

but a great deal of ingenuity

witty recycling,

and hard work from volunteers

a beautiful

and useful

community garden

has been created to benefit local residents and 
provide employment  and ground based training 
for local unemployed people.


  1. This is a wonderful photo essay of an exciting community project!

  2. It looks wonderful. I absolutely love that ceiling too.
    My Dad grew Chrysanthemums and I was taken to the Headmaster by my infant teacher because I had written chrysanthemum in my news book. Then I had to spell it out loud to him to prove I really knew it.
    I always think of Dad when I see them and smell them.
