We have had such a great time in the garden the past few weeks and wanted to share it with you! Thanks to the Bunnings Warehouse Community Appreciation Project we had 22 amazing Bunnings staff members donate their time to spruce up our outdoor area! They spent a whole day planting, mulching, sanding, painting, digging and cleaning the outdoor spaces at our East Reservoir health centre. As part of the project they generously covered the entire cost of the works, including donating more than 20 native plants for our gardens.
This new space now has a raised garden bed where staff from the Aboriginal health team will use to plant indigenous seeds and share knowledge about growing and harvesting indigenous plants. There will be a yarning circle established and more plants and decorative objects will create a welcoming space for everyone to enjoy.
Bunnings Warehouse has been a great supporter of Your Community Health through various projects over the last few years. We are very grateful to them for their help and hard work this past week.
In honour of our new outdoor space, here are some reasons you might want to get in the garden too!
4 REASONS TO GET IN THE GARDEN!
