Community garden tidy-up and shindig

WARU Community Gardens needs people to lend a helping hand at a community clean-up on Saturday, March 3.

Co-ordinator Richard Moorfield from Tranquil Sounds Productions said volunteers would clean up the Waru gardens and surrounding roadways, and then enjoy a little shindig afterwards.

"We have the support of GenYadaba, Capricorn Coast Landcare and Livingstone Shire Council and would love to see the community come along and lend a hand,” Mr Moorfield said.

"Join us to help clean up, fix up and conserve the environment, because when the rubbish is gone, nature can carry on.

"We are calling upon anyone and everyone to come and lend a hand in cleaning up. We will be focusing on the grounds themselves and surrounding areas, roadsides and neighbouring bushland.”

Mr Moorfield said everyone was invited, noting that children were not allowed to work alongside roadways for safety reasons.

"There will be bushland and parks on the agenda for those with kids. Bring your own gloves, closed-in shoes, hat and sunscreen and we will provide the rest.

"After the clean-up, which is expected to go from 8am-noon, there will be an afternoon of delights back at the gardens featuring local musicians and DJs, yummy foods and refreshments from noon until 10pm.

"This is a celebration to say thank you for the big clean-up and sorting effort in the morning,” he said.

For those who participated in the clean-up, entry will be free, however you still can donate if you like.

For all other patrons we ask for a $10 donation.

All money raised will go towards the community garden's huge revegetation and tree planting project in early 2019.
