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