Transition Perth volunteers Vanessa Compton, Mike Fletcher, Sharon Teed, and Susanne Wallner created a seven circuit labyrinth for the enjoyment of the Stewart Park Music Festival 2014 community, using simple geometry tools and a spray paint wand. The work crew was visited by local police officer Bird, who cycled over to investigate a report of "seniors vandalising the park with spray paint graffiti" - a highlight of the installation process!
On Saturday July 26, 2014 we toured over 7 gardens. We enjoyed the diversity of the gardens, from the small ones at Brian's and also at Joe's to the bigger ones like Andrew's and the Table's. The hosts were all helpful and glad to answer questions. The walk between places allowed folks to socialize. And last but not least, we enjoyed another great potluck! Thanks to the Table Community Food Center gardeners for hosting the potluck!
