Find out about the news at the Friends of Kings Park.
Read on for information on upcoming events, May Plant Sale, Volunteer activities, and more.
These are trying times with quick lockdowns and restricted volunteering attendance. Only a week away from the Park but it felt an age! Helena will keep you informed when future volunteering activities are cancelled.
I am delighted to announce the Management Committee has approved Life Membership of the Friends for Lesley Hammersley, Grady Brand and Luke Sweedman. As Luke is leaving us soon to go east to be with his family, a certificate was presented to him at a recent Friends meeting when he spoke about collecting seeds. Thank you for all the support, encouragement and advice the three of you have given to the Friends over a combined total of 94 years!!
The Friends are a member of the Australian Association of Friends of Botanic Gardens. We receive a copy of their monthly newsletter called e-ucalypt news as part of our membership. For those of you who are interested in reading about other botanical gardens in Australia, Alex has included a link below.
A reminder that our next plant sale will be held on Sunday, 30 May. Work on a new pavilion, Ngoolaark, on the north-eastern side of Exhibition Ground has started. As this will have an impact on the way the plant sales are set up, we will need lots of volunteers to help out, so please sign up
In my March report to members, I briefly outlined the results of our volunteer survey. To see more details of this survey please click here.
I look forward to welcoming volunteers to the National Volunteer Week morning tea celebration on Wednesday, 19 May at 10.30 am at Wanju Marr. Please let Helena know on [email protected]
