MONA’s Victory Garden

David Walsh and his wife Kirsha Kaechele never stop thinking; never stop doing.  They are no different than the rest of us – being isolated and at home. To do something useful and productive, Kirsha decided to dig up the lawns of  the world famous MONA (Museum of New and Old Art) in Hobart’s northern suburbs and plant vegetables.  You can read more here and watch and listen to a video here.

Inspiring. Will you take the challenge? I was already ahead when I read this story; I had just finished sifting rocks and roots from a garden bed, added compost and a sprinkle of blood and bone, and then mulched it. By the time you read this, I will have planted broad bean and other seeds and perhaps action will have happened below the soil surface if not above.  While I will be following MONA’s progress I don’t care about competition nor winning anything. But maybe you do?

    Ha! …I was well ahead of time…dug up my whole garden that was full of lawn 20 years ago and turned it into a very productive patch.
