Organic Goodness for Body and Soul

Just a hop, skip and jump from where I live is this amazing Community Environment Park called shares it's name with the Roman Goddess for Agriculture. It is an internationally recognised model of a sustainable society, located on 10 acres, close to our city. It runs on renewable energy, and conserves and recycles its water and waste. It also grows organic food and teaches environmentally friendly living. Pretty cool, huh?

It has been in existence for 27 years and employs 150 people. It is a not for profit organisation.

It has a nursery, and an organic farm and market...

On the first Saturday of each month it offers a community baking group, where you can bring along food to be baked in their wood oven...they encourage people to bring along musical instruments while their food is cooking.

How cool is this tree house?

Looking down on the cafe, where they often have musicians playing while you eat the yummy, organic meals...or just enjoy a chai...or perhaps a glass of vino?

Me sitting outside a typical Mongolian Ger.

There are lots of unusual sculptures dotted about the gardens....

The Cafe (I had the felafel and pumpkin baguette...yummy)

These are the lovelies who joined me for nice to catch up with these gorgeous girls...
