Nurs­ery gets $14,600 grant

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A VIRUS-DAM­AGED web­site and com­put­ers at com­mu­nity nurs­ery APACE in North Fre­man­tle will get a re­boot with a $14,647 Lot­tery­west grant pre­sented by Cottes­loe MLA Colin Bar­nett on Wed­nes­day.

The 1983-es­tab­lished nurs­ery suc­cess­fully lob­bied Mr Bar­nett when its land in river­side Jo­han­nah Street was un­der threat sev­eral years ago.

The nurs­ery grows na­tive and wa­ter­wise plants for the pub­lic and 14 coun­cils, and con­ducts com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion and land care through­out south-west sub­urbs.

APACE co-or­di­na­tor Tony Free­man said the in­ter­net virus hit the web­site about a year ago, and the grant would be used to make it se­cure for its use with mo­bile tele­phones, fit a new stand­alone server, up­date soft­ware and ter­mi­nals, and train staff.

Cottes­loe MLA Colin Bar­nett and APACE co-or­di­na­tor Tony Free­man look at wa­ter­wise plants grown at the nurs­ery.
