    Hi, I’m an amateur Gardner but love the idea of sustainability and being able to provide for my own tastes and needs through my garden. As the number of Gardner’s seems to be growing it is a concern to me that the earth needs untouched spaces in our communities for the wildlife still left, to survive. It’s always a concern when I see comments like “…as you turn every patch of earth around your hood into an edible […]…”.
    Could we find ways to make people conscious of leaving suitable space for other creatures to live and have feeding grounds please.

    Hi Marie

    I totally agree with you. This is a good point to include in the next Garden Guide edition, thank you. I am blessed with a massive open space over the road from my house where I’d like us to create communal space. I’d catch those occasional comment in the social group about “we must make a park, the municipality must flatten it and lay some grass for us to take our kids” To which I proclaim, the land already has the most exquisite indigenous plants and stunning flowers. It is also riddled with rubbish and killer wild grass, along with a good few weeds I pull out when I see them. Those black seeds that stick to your clothing… eish. It also gets Khaki bos, which I have harvested for insecticide. Yesterday I cleared some strangling grass to help the one pincushion bush to survive.
    My point is, I am entering my second year here in this hood, with my very first garden of my own.. which has boomed with life. I have sent a proposal to the people about organically creating communal space. In a way that highlights the indigenous beauty and with the use of the rocks that are laying around we can carve a path to an opening for a kids play park and gathering space. While keeping most of the space wild, we can co exist and learn about our natural environment along the way.
    I envision some beds to grow those creeping veggies that would take over my garden.. like pumpkin, butternut. We harvested 4 watermelons during lockdown, which also creeps everywhere. While in the field it would not be noticed among the bushes. What the space can provide is more exchanges of ideas, seeds, plants, home grown food eventually.. to establish some local sustainability in our hood, where we already supporting local.

    So yes… may your point be heard.

    Thank you.
