Heather Morrison attended the February meeting to thank the club for our donation of $500 towards plants for the garden of the respite house.
“The Mount Alexander Shire Accommodation and Respite Group (MASARG Inc.) is a dedicated, independent group of parents, carers and community members working to address the critical need for respite and accommodation infrastructure and services for people with disabilities in the area”. A respite house was completed at McKenzie Hill in Castlemaine in 2016 and a number of organisations and people have contributed to landscaping the gardens.
Heather spoke about the benefits of having lovely trees and shrubs in an attractive landscaped garden and mentioned some of the plants and trees purchased and planted from the donation made by our club. A visit for club members to the garden is planned in the near future.
