Calling all green thumbs

DO you have a green thumb?

Do you have time on your hands and are interested in contributing to the community?

And, most importantly, do you have the odd piece of gardening equipment – an unused spade, an underused trowel, a neglected wheelbarrow – sitting idle in the shed that may be of better use to someone else?

Member for Pembroke Jo Siejka is encouraging the Eastern Shore community to get involved in the Warrane Mornington Neighbourhood Centre’s new project – an accessibility garden that is now underway and due to be completed by the end of the year.

“I visited the Warrane Mornington Neighbourhood Centre this month and I know that the volunteers and everyone who values this community hub is excited about this project,” Ms Siejka said.

“The garden has been in planning since 2015, but now that it is taking form, they need volunteers and donations to finally see it finished.

“If you have gardening equipment that you might no longer need or plants that could be used, I encourage you to visit and give the centre a helping hand.

“When it is completed, the garden will have disability access and disability-friendly toilets, as well as a shed and water tank and eight raised garden beds.

“The centre also has an application before the Tasmanian Community Fund to fund paths, fruit trees and nature-based play equipment.

“Anyone who wants to lend a helping hand would be very welcome.”
