Last Thursday, more than two years’ work by the Quinns Beach Primary School community, Rotary Club of Mindarie and Bunnings staff resulted in garden beds of herbs and vegetables.

Club president Geoff Newby-Butt said the project started with discussions about using trades students from the Brighton Shed who did the groundwork in 2012.

‘In a long drawn out process the ‘boys’ established the path, and built and rendered the planter boxes,’ he said.

‘In February, we invited Bunnings to help get this project finished ” they agreed to reticulate the planter boxes, provide plants and assist with planting, all of which they did and now we have the finished garden, tended to by the students at the school.’

Mr Newby-Butt said this was the result of work by volunteers and the generosity of local businesses.
