Jewish Melbourne - The Year Without A Garden


Title (Dublin Core)

Jewish Melbourne - The Year Without A Garden

Description (Dublin Core)

I love to garden. And especially our community garden. We started small and watched it grow year by year. The friendships grew too. It was also a place where neighbor's walking their dogs or just out for a stroll could pause, admire the colors and aromas - a bit of peace in an increasingly stressful world. This year, restrictions governing social distancing and community gatherings prohibited us from working on our garden. The pandemic had taken yet another joy from our lives.
I am lonely, and yearn for the satisfaction that comes from physical labor and yields beautiful results shared with friends.
