Follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done
Breathe, breathe in the air
Set your intentions
Dream with care
Tomorrow is a new day for everyone,
Brand new moon, brand new sun
So follow, follow the sun,
The direction of the bird,
The direction of love
Breathe, breathe in the air,
Cherish this moment,
Cherish this breath
Tomorrow is a new day for everyone,
Brand new moon, brand new sun
When you feel life coming down on you,
Like a heavy weight
When you feel this crazy society,
Adding to the strain
Take a stroll to the nearest waters
And remember your place
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came
So which way is the wind blowin’,
And what does your heart say?
So follow, follow the sun,
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done

Do it with full heart

[Happen Films]

“Lou started the Food is Free laneway in Ballarat just over a year ago.

When Lou moved to a big property, she started growing far too many vegetables to use herself, “I was sharing them with neighbours and friends and ran out of people to give it to. I realised I should start sharing with the local community”.

Lou figured out that the easiest place to start her movement would be the laneway next to her house. She now gets anywhere from 20 to 100 visitors a day to her laneway, “It enabled me to know all of my neighbours now and made me feel much more connected to the community”. There are about four spaces in Ballarat now and also in Castlemaine, Bendigo, Gippsland and right across to Perth. “It’s not about food, it’s about connecting. People come and don’t even take food, they just come for the conversations. Gardening is so wonderful for mental health and wellbeing. It’s really become quite a little hub and it’s really lovely to see that.”[Australian of the Day]
