Kristen McCarthy presents Community Gardens: Transform Urban Spaces posted at, saying, "Traditionally, community gardens emerge in the most unlikely spaces: from dispossessed parking lots and abandoned railway lines, to hubcap strewn parks and needle plagued back alleys, to the sagging rooftops that overlook laundry lines stretched out across the cityscape in multifarious patterns. In these areas rejected and wasted from human-made decay, urban gardens are birthed."

In the Woods

Stephen presents Take a Moment to Reflect posted at Balanced Existence, saying, "Yesterday I got up early, ate a big breakfast of eggs, bacon and an apple and then drove by myself up into the Blue Mountains. I regularly plan days such as yesterday. This is because I feel it is very important to occasionally take time to reflect on where I am, what I’ve been doing and where I appear to be going."
