On the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast this week, we travel to Australia to chat with Adina Oosterwijk about community greening. Her work at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney helps bring community members together.
Adina and the Community Greening Team provide support for more than 70 community gardens across the broader Sydney area. She also specializes in working with children and is a permaculture designer.

AND – if you happen to be in the Sydney area, check out this fantastic exhibit from Fleurs de Villes: Femmes happening August 19-28, 2022. We saw a similar expo at the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival in February. It was a gorgeous use of plants as clothing. Don’t miss it if you can!
Oh, and about that Brush turkey Adina mentioned…
Enjoy the podcast, and consider starting a community greening project in your own area. Gardening brings people together!
