Worms cast new light at Leith Park

May 6, 2020

Worms are the latest residents to make Leith Park their home thanks to a grant from Banyule Council.

They have taken up residence in worm farms which have been placed throughout the gardens, along with veggie beds which are now being planted out with seeds and seedlings by residents.

Jane Glynn, Liscombe House receptionist, has been working on several gardening projects with residents Robyn Morris, Janet Faulkner, Carol Thorpe, Hugh Simmons and Bryan Lewis.

“Creating edible gardens for everyone to enjoy is always fun and in the midst of the pandemic, it is also proving to be a great form of exercise – all within the physical distancing guidelines,” Jane said.

The residents have been helped by Ravi, who made the beds, the gardening team and Damian Pennington, Property Manager.

The $7,000 grant has also been used to buy tools, seeds, soil and compost for the beds.

Sanctuary is how artist Gillian Coates describes her home at Currie Park, OCAV’s village in Euroa. “When I go to Melbourne and I am heading back to Euroa, I can’t wait to get home to the peacefulness of this place. It is like a sanctuary for me."
