THE Cock­man House Vegie Grow­ers col­lected a quar­tet of ac­co­lades at the Wan­neroo Show re­cently, build­ing on the suc­cess of their in­au­gu­ral en­try a year ear­lier.

The group of seven vol­un­teers tend to the veg­etable gar­dens at Wan­neroo’s old­est stand­ing res­i­dence, up­hold­ing the Cock­man fam­ily’s mar­ket gar­dener her­itage.

The group won first prizes for a tray of salad veg­eta­bles, car­rots, let­tuce and rhubarb en­tries, and sec­ond prizes for a tray of veg­eta­bles and leeks at the agri­cul­tural show at Wan­neroo Show­ground in Novem­ber.

“Four wins and two sec­ond places are a big achieve­ment con­sid­er­ing it was only the sec­ond time we’ve en­tered,” vol­un­teer gar­dener Vickie Anderson said.

Mrs Anderson said the group met two or three times a week, tend­ing to the gar­den and giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity.
