    I read this on 'The Conversation' website today: So what is the role of planning? While we cannot blame planners for causing all these issues, they do have the ability to intervene and thus a role to play in improving urban life. Design guidelines, for example, can help by ensuring people have more accidental social encounters in spaces like cafes, at mailboxes or in gardens. So too can more strategic interventions such as community gardens – places where people grow not only food, but also friendships. More green space can also potentially buffer noise, heat and light, and provide respite from crowds.' (http://theconversation.com/planners-know-depressingly-little-about-a-citys-impacts-on-our-mental-health-81098?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=twitterbutton) As our inner cities become more crammed with people living in apartments with no gardens the demand for community gardens is going to soar, no doubt about it.

    @meecham Hi Ella @meecham Thanks for joining the network, we noticed you joined as an unfunded garden but didn't pop the name of the garden on the membership form. Can you let us know what garden you represent - thanks. Cheers and welcome ...Fiona Website support volunteer FYI @membership

    Hi everyone. Well....we have taken the first tentative steps in starting our community garden. We are in negotiations with another local club to establish the community garden. Talks have been happening with the local shire council officers and we have lots of enthusiasm and commitment to the project. Any suggestions on what steps we need to ensure at this early stage? Cheers. Diana
