Mid-Winter Garden Party at Nimbin Aged Care & Respite Services

 

Thursday 18th June 2015

 

 Another successful acknowledgement of all the wonderful seniors and carers in our communities and the official opening of our new garden area unfolded in the glorious sunshine on Thursday 18th June. Local businesses, community organisations and volunteers generously donated raffle prizes, their time, delightful entertainment and equipment ensuring a wonderful party was had by all. The ‘Queen’ graced us briefly with her regal presence, Rainbow Power Company presented a hose system for the garden and Mayor Jenny Dowell officially opened the new garden area with a thoughtful and inspiring speech.  

The edible garden project at Bottlebrush Studio was kicked-started with a LCC Grant resulting in a shaded patio area, a raised salad bed for our NACRS social lunches and a raised herb-tea garden for soothing brews. NACRS worked in partnership with Djangbung Gardens Permaculture College, and in particular student Sam who designed the garden area using permaculture principles following consultation with clients, staff and community centre workers. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making Garden Party such a success, helping us to raise over $400 towards Nimbin NAIDOC 2014 celebrations. In particular we would like to thank the following businesses for their generous gifts:  Hummingbird Café, Armonica, Pot of Gold, Spangled Drongo, Contented Tummy, Pheonix Rising, Reka Cafe and Stringworks.  And thank you to Stringworks for the PA, the Aboriginal Cultural Centre for the BBQ and Summerland Credit Union for the marquees.  See our Nimbin Aged Care & Respite Services Facebook page for more information about our social support services for local elders, disabled people and all carers in our communities.
