The new outdoor kitchen in action!
Hello Wollangarra Supporters,
it has been a while since the last Global Giving update and there is lots to report! The director and staff team have run many successful program during the first half of the year and inspired many young people from a wide range of backgrounds. There have also been lots of helpers coming up to work around the property and help with courses.
This weekend is the Wood-chop weekend on the property where a large group of Wollangarra community members will work hard to stock up the Wood sheds for the long winter ahead.
The projects occurring around Wollangarra are many and varied!
The Outdoor Kitchen now has a fully functioning stove (also producing hot water), a cool room for food storage and a great wash up area. All of this wouldn't have been possible without generous donations. Soon the kitchen will be finished, but first it needs to be fitted out to meet commercial kitchen standards.
Other projects include making a fully fox proof duck pen, buying/ sourcing more fruit trees and planting some more mini orchards around the property, organising revegetation work for the bottom flat paddock and coming up with a landscape management plan for the property, which will be implemented with the aim of teaching young people about sustainable land and waterway management. All of these things will take time and money, therefore a donation, small or large would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you to those who have donated money or time to Wollangarra in the past few months and thank-you for taking the time to read this update. If you would like to speak with Wollangarra directly, please call 0351480492.
Lastly, on the 25th of June there will be a fundraising event held in the Fitzroy Town Hall to raise money for Wollangarra. This event will be a bush-dance and starts from 7pm onwards. Call Gabi on 0421925154 for details. Hope to see you there!
The beautiful homestead
