Endeavour Foundation Garden Project
This has been a fantastic hands on project,being able to build an amazing raised garden bed structure for this organisation,so that their clients can learn how to grow vegetables and then eventually also learn to cook them and make some delicious food for themselves. Thanks to Bunnings for donating all the materials and our hardworking volunteers who attended the three stages of construction;demolishing the old garden,constructing the raised beds and then filling in with the soil.
