Logan Community Garden `a little piece of Africa in suburban Australia'.
The Logan Community Garden was the venue for the Gold Coast Organic Growers first Club outing of the year.
This community garden established by Griffith University in early 2006 is gardened by African refugee families and has become one of the most productive community gardens in the country”.
I found the visit an exciting opportunity to met some wonderful people and discover many new foods.
This special mother and son from Zimbabwe introduced us to the nutritional and healing qualities of a member of the okra family.
This Egyptian spinach is tough enough to provide ongoing greens during the tough Australian Summer.
Cassava growing along the path and another green staple I had not seen before.
So many great ideas, nothing wasted and nutritious food everywhere you looked.
A special day with so much discovered.
