“My garden is my home and my sanctuary.
It’s my space and I love to be surrounded by the flowers I love.”
This is how the flowers at the flower garden at The Perennial Garden in Melbourne’s east end look from the front.

One of the gardens that the Perennials has recently added to their collection is a ‘flower garden’ with 1,100 varieties of flower.
The flowers are made of various natural ingredients and can range from the simple to the exotic, from wildflowers to exotic flowers and more.
“I think it’s a very unique way of living in Melbourne,” says Sarah.
“It’s a wonderful way of looking after yourself and taking care of your plants.”
It’s really just about taking care and loving what you have.
“Sarah has been working as a gardener for the past five years, after her family were evacuated from their home in the Victorian town of Nuneaton, near Melbourne.
Sarah says she started her garden business to give back to the community and was inspired by the Victorian flower gardens she had visited when she was growing up.
I’m not the most organised person but I like to think I have a little bit of a gift for making things and making things grow.”
Sarah started out as a garden worker at a local nursery, but says she grew into a full-time gardener.
In the late 1980s, the Victorian government decided to build a national network of public gardens and public parks to reduce the number of greenhouse gas emissions.
This network was eventually extended to the state of Victoria, and Sarah worked with other local and national organisations to create the Prenants Garden.
A lot of the work Sarah has done has involved the help of volunteers.
Her favourite part of her job is making the plants grow and growing them.
“[My work] is a bit more social, it’s something you do with friends or people who have gardens and gardeners who come along and help with that.”
I’ve always been a garder and I’ve always enjoyed gardening, but it’s always been something that I’ve had to learn about in a very personal way.
“Sarah says the Pesticides Action Network is always looking for more volunteers to help with the gardens and gardens themselves.
It has been a very rewarding experience to get to know a bunch of the volunteers that have been coming through, so it’s been an amazing experience and I’m really grateful for the support.
She has also met people like her father, who works in a local paper, and her grandmother, who has a farm and is involved in her children’s education.
There’s a lot of work to be done in the future, but Sarah says she’s excited about where her future is.
