Health, Wellbeing and Relationships
Community gardens - a healthy confluence!

This week's Take Time program is fully devoted to community gardens in SA. Recorded last Saturday 29 October 2005, at an open day at the Duck Flat Community Garden, part of Mt Barker and District Health Services Inc, the program is based on an interview with the coordinator of Duck Flat Community Garden Tess Minett, and several of the visitors from other community gardens in SA. Also in this feature program, Rosemary Neal, executive officer of the SA Community and Neighbourhood Houses and Centres Association, speaks about the importance of the community gardens movement across South Australia. The health and wellbeing benefits are a focus of the program.

Work and Career
Under-employed? Then find out about The Work Bank
With the decline in the number of permanent full-time or part-time jobs in Australia, some people find themselves unable to find fulltime work - in other words, they may consider themselves to be under-employed, if not unemployed.

The Work Bank is an initiative that assists self employed individuals to access "fragmented" work - that is, a few hours work here and there, or very short term contracts.

Tony Ryan talks with Shandy Arlidge, Operations Manager with The Work Bank, which is funded through the SA Government and supported by Anglicare SA, and is based in the Adelaide suburb of Elizabeth.
