When someone says “art,” they often use it as shorthand for “paintings and sculptures.” Art is everywhere, though: in nature, in architecture, in literature, and more. It’s anywhere we see beauty and meaning.

The Kids Vegies on the Verge has beauty and meaning for me.
Once upon a time I saw vegetable gardens as being fairly uninteresting and a bit of an eye-sore. Now I see them as things of beauty that nurture hope for the future: they have transformational meaning for me.
When my partner and daughters decided to convert our nature strip into a vegetable garden for kids in the street, I thought it was a great idea (and was happy to help) but had no idea of its potential impact. Kids Vegies on the Verge has transformed relationships in the street and enriched our lives in more ways than I could have imagined.
Is it art? Probably not. Does it have beauty and meaning? Without a doubt.
