Red Cross Australia – Lady Lawley Cottage Cottesloe
We are fortunate enough to work with some amazing community groups, including Lady Lawley Cottage in Cottesloe – a day care and residential respite for children with disabilities in Perth.
Our team donated a beautiful sensory garden for the children and families staying at the cottage, transforming an unfunctional space into an interactive and edible garden for residents to enjoy.
We filled the wheelchair friendly garden with fragrant herbs, an array of textures and pops of colour – connecting families to natures through all their senses with the aim to brighten the days of those in need.
In The News
We work closely with the University to assist the students with growing produce and providing a peaceful campus retreat.
Guide Dogs Association
Our team hold gardening workshops with the visibility impaired, focusing on touch, smell and taste. Part proceeds of our gardens installed and maintained by our team also go back into serving these community programs.
The Spiers Center provides much needed emergency relief to individuals and families in need in Perth. Our team are proud to support the center by donating fresh produce, harvested from our gardens.
