Community Gardens Inspire More Then Just Gardening

I've been attending the community garden for more then a year now and I really haven't done a lot of gardening, yet by going there I have been inspired to pursue creativity in many different ways.

I remember the first time that I decided to take my painting gear to the garden it felt great and was like breaking a creative drought that had lasted about three years. My Mum had passed away and I hadn't got back into painting until that day at the garden.

It felt great and since then I have been inspired to paint, participate in nature art and experiment in ways that I never have previously.

The previous paintings were used as preliminary sketchers for further paintings.

Now this artistic spree has been going on for over six months and it's been a wondrous journey. I want to continue by saying that the garden has even influenced the way I have expressed myself in my home. I tell everyone that I have created a tree house in my lounge room. 
Welcome to the tree house.

Community gardens are here for the community and everyone has something that they can contribute. I am so glad that I decided to come along as it's been my little hidden paradise in Barrack Heights. I hope that it can be yours too.
