More than twenty volunteers gathered for a picnic lunch by the river today as Parklands staff thanked them for their fanstastic efforts enhancing the bushlands around Albury Wodonga and region this year.
Ranger Danny Jones put it perfectly when he said “Its often Parklands gets the thanks, but its you guys who they are really thanking, and we want to acknowledge that”.
The gathered volunteers included the current Green Army team, Community Market Garden representatives, and bush restoration volunteers who have done everything from weeding, planting and fencing to bridge repair and building tracks.
Ranger David Saxton acknowledged the terrific amount of work achieved with by all – testament to volunteer’s willingness to ‘get in and get it done’, and how much staff appreciate the knowledge and skills volunteers always bring to the job.
While Parklands is closing down for a few weeks over summer, the Community Market Garden is still open for volunteer assistance. Rohit and the team will be there daily from 8am watering, weeding and upgrading infrastructure, and would welcome any helping hands, even for just an hour a day.
