Over 1,000 visitors attended our plant sale on Sunday. The weather was beautiful, the Park looked amazing, and the plants were crying out ‘buy me, buy me’. A very big thank you to our team of volunteers who made the plant sale such a huge success, raising $39,000! It was pleasing to note the number of new customers at our plant sale on Sunday.
One of our Growing Friends volunteers, Betty Forbes, who has been with the Friends for over twenty years, decided to hang up her gardening gloves and say goodbye. She has been a ‘wonder woman’ helping out on Wednesday and Saturday mornings in the nursery and at our plant sales, in all weather. On behalf of the Friends I cannot thank you enough, Betty, for your dedication and support. We will miss you.
The building of Wanju Marr, our new Volunteers Hub in Eucalyptus Car Park, is due for completion by the end of July. Once fit-out has been completed members will be given the opportunity to look around the building and entertainment area. We were very fortunate to receive a grant from Lotterywest to improve facilities for all volunteer groups in Kings Park and expand volunteer opportunities.
