This is a couple of examples of recent entries on the facebook page:.
Laughter is the best medicine! A good belly laugh exercises your diaphragm, contracts your abs and works your shoulders. Laughing 100 times is comparable to 10 minutes on a rowing machine or 15 minutes on an exercise bike! Check out some other cute facts about laughter below!
Now how many Governments (Local, State or Federal) do you think give two hoots about your laughter quota. Apparently the volunteer pruners at the State Rose Garden not only get exercise and roses but get plenty of laughter as well. So if you are new to the city and want to get involved then click on the link they provided with their comment. Now if this isn't an invitation to connect?
Click "like" if you know a beautiful woman.
I like this one, as we come in all shapes, sizes, colours and religions in this city.
On the Council's webside under Sustainable Living in the City of Wyndham you can find many tabs like:
Where all the Op Shops are
How to reduce waste at home;
Saving Energy and Water;
And best of all and the reason i was posting today (cause you knew i would get their eventually), a brand new booklet called Home Harvest.
Home Harvest - How to Grow your Own Delicious Fresh Food You can view this booklet in PDF form by clicking link. It really is quite detailed yet simple for a beginner, like me.
This fantastic booklet was created with the assistance of Sustainable Gardening Australia. I do recommend checking this site out. It has great resources and fact sheets. If you are in another Victorian municipality or are in a temperate zone, they may have one that is specific to your area.
Wyndham are giving 25 residents the opportunity to attend a free gardening workshop to launch their new Home Harvest booklet created and tailored specifically for Wyndham residents. Home Harvest is delivered as an intensive 5 hour workshop focused on designing and maintaining a successful produce garden. Helen Tuton, on behalf of Sustainable Gardening Australia, will educate and will demonstrate while participants get to enjoy a “hands on” experience. Don't forget lunch and snacks, they promised!
Well guess who got to be one of the 25 residents? ME
So stay tuned for a post over this coming weekend. I am sure to have more to say and be full of enthusiasm.
For those who haven't been following the great chicken adventure (try the last three posts), here is a shot of three of my five little girls (Pekin Bantams) eating politely from the bowl this morning. I sadly get only a glimpse as i waltz out the door and they have already put themselves to bed when i get home.
