Growing Green Ideas

If you've driven along Ross River Road recently you might have noticed something growing. We’ve created a thriving sustainable garden on the vacant block next door. Packed full of veggies and our family of chooks, its our very own patch of green and its yielding all kinds of delicious produce.

We’ve preserved the lemons and pickled the chillis and created what we like to call our Edible Lounge. We’ve cooked up a storm for our visitors and swapped recipes with our neighbours. (Try out my Antipasto recipe using heirloom variety eggplants, tomato and lemons picked straight from the garden.)

Yes, we make no secret of our passion for good food at Smile Dental, but there is more to it than that. Research reveals a strong relationship between general health and oral health.

Put simply, a well-balanced diet and lifestyle will keep you smiling for life. Of course, our garden is also part of a growing trend towards eating locally and a realization that we all have the power to improve the health of the environment.

Maybe it’s time to start your own vegetable garden?
