I ONCE read that to improve our well-being we needed four things: meeting with like minds, continued learning, outdoor exercise and volunteering. All of these are met by my Monday morning seed collecting group.
But what about during lockdown? We are lucky in South Gippsland to have so many areas of beach and bushland. Our limited walks can provide “continued learning” and “outdoor exercise”. I birdwatch, search for insects, name plants, note changes (for example, so many plants are flowering early this year).
