With the use of Facebook in decline, Mandurah Community Gardens has decided to create another location for you to connect with us - we now have a profile on Pinterest.
Mandurah Community Gardens on Pinterest is a great way for sharing information and links by "pinning" the post into a topic board. It is like searching for information on Google but using pictures and text to discover information. It also allows you to communicate with us too by leaving comments or sending us a message AND you can easily share our profile, a topic board or a pin to anyone else.
Currently we have organised our pins into 3 different boards:
Group Activities - promoting events and showing pictures from the latest events
Community Food - with recipe ideas, Foodbank information and healthy food information.
The Gardens - gardening tips, gardening results, generally what members are doing in the gardens.
We may add more boards later on to help organise everything to do with Mandurah Community Gardens in a meaningful way.
Pinterest is a friendlier and more interesting social platform than the others, being more informative than opinionated, it offers a more considerate way of sharing with little to no trolling (anonymous rude critics). It also collects much less personal information than other social platforms do, and it does not manipulate what is shown to you as some other social media does.
Previews from posts on our Pinterest profile now display in the column to the right of our news page.
If you don't already use Pinterest, give it a go! You can get the app for your iPhone or iPad from the App Store. The app is also available from the Google Play Store. You can also use Pinterest in the browser on your computer without needing to install anything.
