Today my students and I played host to gardeners from Cultivating Community, the Carlton Neighbourhood Learning Centre and the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre in our campus nursery where we propagated ginger, turmeric, sweet potatoes, yams and more ready for the Melbourne summer growing season. Pictured with me is Tessie from Papua New Guinea who told us all how desperate she was to grow and garden again in real soil after moving to Melbourne, coming from a culture with deep and ancient gardening traditions. Tessie has inspired us all to try growing peanuts in Melbourne. Thanks to everyone for coming today and to my students for being such great horticultural facilitators! #communitygardeners #growingplants #crossculturalexchange #culturallyappropriatefood #facilitation #propagatingplants #burnleynursery #cultivatingcommunity #asrc @c.nlc @cultivatingcommunity @asrc1
