A belated welcome to our 2019 staff team! Head over to the website to get to know them. Welcome Fiora, Jen, Catherine, Annabelle and Josh!

Our upcoming events include the Wood Chop from June the 7th-9th and 'The Hop' AKA The City Bushdance on June 28th (Melbourne)!

Early April we said goodbye to our FIRST group! And seiuosly, the year started with a BANG! This crew helped us move over 300 bricks demolish a hybrid toilet, the she-wee and he-wee!! What a week!

Also our Stage 3 visited The Crossing Land. They road tripped up from Woll to spend some time building toilets and exploring the coast!

Stage 2 is shaping up to be a goodin'. We're going to be based on the flat for a few nights, doing a few day projects, a night out on hike and so much fun! July Stage 2 bookings will open April 29!

Our next event is the wood Chop! Please join us at this striking even! We'll have a smashing time, cart, splitting and stacking! Chop, chop, call the homestaead to RSVP 51480492

And finally, our most recent vist was from the Stage 2's in early April. They spent a week of their school holidays making a track upstream from Woll that forms part of our new local walk. The track looks amzing and it is no wonder because they worked bloddy hard all week. Thanks Stage 2's, you rock!!

Fresh start for 2019!

Fruit Bottling Weekend!
Fruit Bottling Weekend!

Hello Wollangarra supporters, 

Another busy year has come and pass! The Open Day in October was a success. It was a great weekend to introduce friends and family to Wollangarra, and to meet some new faces. Thanks to all who came along and who helped make the weekend run so successfully. 

More recently, we have just had our fruit bottling weekend and it was a smash! The hot weather on Friday reached scorching limits however that was not enough to deter our many supporters away for what was a fun ‘jam’ packed weekend of preserving fruits, singing around the campfire and of course, hours spent swimming at the river! Thank you to all who were involved in making the weekend amazing

It was also an emotional weekend where we farewelled our hard dedicated 2018 staff leaders and made a warm exciting welcome to our new 2019 staff. All in all it was another successful handover!

In other news, the outdoor kitchen project is up and running and almost complete, which includes new steel bins to keep the food safe and edible. Any donation made through GlobalGiving would be greatly appreciated, and will go towards maintaining these projects so that our young people have the best experience and allows them to 'meet the mountains'.

Wollangarra has lots of courses booked in for 2019 - including a few groups from schools who haven't been to Woll before! It will be an action packed year so if you can spare some time to go and volunteer on a program, the staff would love to have you

 

Thank -you for your ongoing support and for more info check out our website!

Project Update

"What's been going on up at Wollangarra?" I hear you wonder. 

Well the answer, as per usual, is heaps of stuff! 

Wollangarra has had many young people from different schools up to complete a stage one program over the past few months. Over the school holidays we will run Stage one and two holiday programs which are full to the brim of participants. 

The Spring weather has sprung, and staff and vollunteers have been busy in the garden - The Gardening Working Bee next weeekend will make sure everything is ready for Summer planting! So goodbye to epic frosts for the time being...

Wollangarra has farewelled two staff members, who are moving on to their next adventures, and we want to thank them for all of the time, effort and amazing spirit they gave to their Wollangarra experience. The next few months will involve lots of volunteers heading up to Woll to help run courses and maintain the property, so if you feel like a stint at the homestead, in the delightful spring weather, give Woll a call and get on up there! 

Another great time to head up will be the Wollangarra Open Day which falls on the 6th and 7th of October. It's always an awesome weekend to introduce friends and family to Wollangarra, or to head up for the first time yourself. There will be heaps of activities and an auction as well as great food and people. 

There are lots of little projects going on at Wollangarra all of the time, relating to building, maintenance and keeping our courses running smoothly, which rely on donations from our supporters. We really appreciate any contribution! All donations are tax deductible!

Thanks for reading and hopefully see you up at Wollangarra soon!
