Community Healing and Building Social Capital for Change using Gardening

Hi

I'm a Horticultural Therapist and I've noticed there are lots of people in the Logan Shire who are disadvantaged and marginalized. This has manifested in disability, especially depression, anxiety and the panoply of other mental problems than can be mediated by horticultural activity, especially in groups that cooperate.

My question is: What organizations in Logan are catering for the above problems, including disaffected youth, using horticulture? What is the potential for coordinating anything that exists and selling the produce, thereby creating a very satisfying enterprise that would provide many therapeutic benefits?
