The YP event of Lettuce Spring into Action really sprang my COVID restricted mind into action! Such was the intensity of the event. For the first time I came to know that egg shells could be used as calcium supplements for the vegetable plants! I learnt more about sustainability which could be carried out by recycling all fruit peels such as banana peels and paper, egg trays & cardboard into compost for our own garden! My imagination ran wild, if I could recycle all of these, perhaps I would require the Blue bin only once a month! And if most of us use these simple daily life activities, how much waste will we reduce in our council, state, nation & in the world! This fits perfectly to the call of Pope Francis to care about our environment by adopting sustainability!
Anna Sia and her family is truly a blessing not only to our parish but to the wider society! As Christians we have been asked to share and Anna is the perfect example of sharing her great knowledge about home growing veg garden! Fr. Silvio’s demonstration to make our own planter box from pallet wood perhaps will turn for me as a hobby soon! On my way out I collected many saplings to try my luck into homegrown vegies! I hope more such events are held to benefit more parishioners!
