Volunteer gardening work
by ray goodlass
Volunteerism yesterday was limited to gardening work at Erin Earth, an Eco Education garden here in Wagga. I was cutting back saltbush shrubs! Sounds menial, but it is important, because the plants are necessary to help combat the salinity prevalent in this area, but they do get overgrown, so I’m helping them to do what they are intended to do.
The physical exercise, which also involves cycling up there, is of course good for my health. Retirement could get very sedentary, so the gardening and the cycling helps to combat it.
