We receive valuable hands-on help from our Friends in many ways.
Some work from their homes editing our publications, others travel to the Garden for working bees to paint and repair buildings, replace old irrigation and lay new lines and plant and label new plants. Well over 3000 volunteer hours have been given to the Garden during the last year.
One recent working bee was from 28th September to 3rd October 2020 with lots of planting having been done. Seventeen energetic volunteers worked hard on a variety of tasks, planned and unplanned. There was also time to enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
The Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden visited during July 2016 and well and truly went to work !
