A certain multi-national company
who shall forever remain nameless on this blog
due to their activities in the third world (think baby formula)
have donated $25 000 to the local primary school
for a propagation unit.
The unit has been built by volunteers
and the children and other community members
will begin using it shortly.
There is also a community garden being developed (separate to this)
in the area and I think the organisers are hoping
to snare the members of the Over 55 club to work in both.
Native plants as well as vegetables and flowers
will be propagated. Some of these will be sold, others planted out
by the children in conjunction with Landcare
and some will end up in the community garden.
Pete showing the kids some sedge and some eucalypt seeds.
The company is very keen to have coverage of their generosity
and are coming out today for the media photos.
At least the community has another wonderful facility.
I wonder how long before I get hooked in?
