Busi­nesses share vi­sion to grow gar­den

Wanneroo Times - - News - Lucy Jarvis

WAN­NEROO busi­nesses have helped fund a gar­den makeover at a Com­mu­nity Vi­sion fa­cil­ity in Kings­ley.

Wan­neroo Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion held an auc­tion fundrais­ing din­ner in June, rais­ing $1475 for the ren­o­va­tions to pro­vide ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fits for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.

Peo­ple who use the cen­tre can use the com­mu­nity gar­den to plant and grow their own herbs and veg­eta­bles.

“Much of the out­door area was di­lap­i­dated and needed up­grade,” Com­mu­nity Vi­sion chief ex­ec­u­tive Michelle Jenk­ins said.

“With fund­ing, dona­tions and sup­port of the com­mu­nity, we have been able to give the old gar­den a much-needed new lease on life.

“We wanted to be able to give our clients an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence gar­den­ing and de­velop a love of grow­ing their own food.

“They are able to turn this into meals which they can cook in classes held at our Wood­vale cen­tre.”
