How our community gardening is growing in Logan and Scenic Rim
Gardening is an activity enjoyed by many residents in Logan City. There are many formal and informal groups that meet across all areas of Logan. Many grow flowers for their beauty, some grow food for the family table, many of us grow habitat plants for our local wildlife. What we all usually have in common is a willingness to share our surplus and share our knowledge of gardening.
Most of us are aware of the value of good soil and want to improve the productivity of our gardens - for food or flowers. Collectively we can achieve more at our local level. How much can we compost and create organic fertilizer or mulch from material others discard? Can we prevent it from going to landfill where it becomes a problem instead of the asset it can be.
I have always been an avid reader of gardening information - both the printed form and now online and for years have been reading great inspiring stories about people joining together to create community gardens in their local area.
