In appreciation of our volunteers - that's you!

Hi everyone, hope your Spring is going well.

A quick note to let you know that a little while back we applied for a grant from the Federal Government Community Investment program (set up to support and encourage volunteers). Last week we found out that we were successful and have been offered just under $2000!

These funds will cover the cost of some bits and pieces that should make life a little more comfortable for us all as well as some practical stuff:
  • some gardening tools/equipment, 
  • some outdoor furniture,
  • a decent first aid kit, 
  • a whiteboard, 
  • a backpack sprayer to sprayt the fruit trees, 
  • an urn.
Nice eh? 

Anyway, hope to see you in a few weeks on the 25th November at our first big working bee in the community garden.
