The Mount Gambier Community Centre ran a 6 week program called Make Thyme for Gardening. The Program was funded by a Positive Ageing Grant from Health SA and was designed to engage seniors in the community.

A group of enthusiastic and creative people gathered each week to participate in a variety of different gardening activities. The first session was held at Bunnings where the resident garden expert, Liz Watts, conducted a session about ‘What to Plant and When’. Participants then constructed their own herb garden.

ac.care volunteer Annette Cassidy ran the next session which was ‘Design Your Dream Garden.’

In the third week, the group took a trip to see the stunning Aberfoyle Gardens at Kongorong.

A professional florist visited the next week and taught the basics of flower arranging. It was so much fun and the creations were fantastic!

Get Creative with succulents was the fifth session and everyone had a great time creating a living succulent wreath.

For the final session, participants made a Christmas Table decoration, and the creative talents were again on show.
