Friends came from everywhere in 2014 to assist: Friends of Myall Park Botanic Garden [April/May], Caboolture Society for Growing Australian Plants daytime Branch [May] and some special environmental friends from Brisbane assisted with the setting up of the ‘Dorothy’ release day.

During 2013, there were four working bees: Friends of Myall Park Botanic Garden [autumn], Caboolture Society for Growing Australian Plants daytime Branch [autumn]; Friends of Maroochy Botanic Garden [winter], Friends of Myall Park Botanic Garden [winter], Caboolture Society for Growing Australian Plants daytime Branch [spring].
