Blog 113 – A spot of guerrilla gardening at Seaford Heights



Political again I know, but this weekend I joined a group of locals, Senator Nick Xenophon (and all four of the news channels!) to do a spot of ‘Guerrilla Gardening’.

We all had shovels in hand, seeds in our pockets, and we headed for the proposed Seaford Heights housing site to create a community garden, and show that the site should remain as agricultural land, contributing to the food bowl of the state.

The beautiful soils are soon to be covered in concrete and housing, and it actually made me sadder to see the soil and get my hands dirty. I am very glad that Senator Nick Xenophon has thrown his weight behind the cause.  See http://groundswellsa.org/ for more information.
