John Dymock, Melissa Henry, Lydia Jarvis, Roz and Rod Gibson, Roger Warren, Rosemary Nicholls, Jo Snelling, Steve and Peter Jarvis tidied up the Waterwise garden at the Boorowa Hospital recently.Back in 2008, Boorowa Community Landcare Group (BCLG), with assistance from local business, started to develop a ‘Waterwise’ native garden at Boorowa Hospital.
The aim was to provide a peaceful, wheelchair friendly, outdoor setting for patients and visitors. Since 2008 an area to the east of the hospital has gradually been landscaped with native plants, a pathway with a handrail and outdoor seating.
Early in December, a group of Landcare volunteers got together to do some tidying up; weeding, pruning and spreading more mulch. BCLG would like to thank Boorowa Council for supplying the mulch for this ‘spruce up.’ Light rain prevented the group from painting the handrails and this has been postponed until a later date. BCLG also hopes to replant some areas of the garden in autumn.
This is an ongoing project and more volunteers are always welcome. For information please contact the Boorowa Community Landcare Group on 0459 681 018, by email on [email protected], or drop in and visit the Landcare Support Officer in the Boorowa Council building on Market Street.
