New local book asks, how did our garden grow?

Margaret River's Organic Garden has provided a safe haven for many people over the years, this last week more than ever, as the community grieves the tragic loss of one of our most gifted gardeners, Cynda Miles and her family. 

One of the central founders of the garden, Shelley Cullen is calling for short contributions of 50-300 words of memory moments from community members who have shared the peaceful stillness, healing, shelter, abundant wonder, beauty and shared community connectedness which the garden still offers everyone from young to old. 

At the heart of the community, the 30 year anniversary of the Organic Garden is to be celebrated with a publication, 'Wednesday's Garden'.

Together with Peter Rigby and Margot Edwards as editors, with longer contributions from some of the highly active original and current volunteers, Shelley Cullen is realising a long held vision for a book that captures the eclectic sense of place that is unique to this garden. 

Written contributions in the form of snippets, letters, poetic pieces, news cuttings and reflections, and/or high quality jpegs (no bigger than 2MB) need be sent to wednesdaysgarden@gmail.com by Friday June 15 to be considered for inclusion.
