Do you know something that is low risk but high reward?

Gardening.

I know, not the answer you were waiting for, but hear me out.

This year, I, like many of you, have spent a lot of time at home, which has allowed me to tend to my garden and grow more produce than usual. I’ve swapped out regular big shops at the supermarket for picking the veg, herbs and fruit off the vines in my garden.

Whatever I can’t plant myself, I’ve also been endeavouring to purchase from a local small grocer or the farmers markets. I've recently made Saturday mornings a farmer's market "masked meet up" with friends which is a good way to encourage each other towards healthy eating and supporting farmers and growers.


So, what's the best part about gardening?

We think we've settled the argument here.

Gathering together during the holidays can lead us to notice changes in our loved ones and their needs, especially if there has been some time between visits.

Starting a conversation about care isn’t always easy but like many things, sometimes you just need to take the first step.

To help nurture those conversations, we invite you to our Care Centre Open Days at your local Ryman village. A tour will give you first-hand experience of our village communities and the exceptional care we provide. Care options include the extra support of a serviced apartment, resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care.

Falun Gong junkmail

Jack from Melville

Has anyone else with a No Junkmail sign been getting Falun Gong junkmail? I'm sure they care a lot about whatever problem they have in China, but I don't, so what right have they to ignore our sign? Commercial companies respect it, what is their problem?
