Jean Hall loves her garden, set up by the Volunteer Task Force.

Last week, Mrs Hall had eight volunteers working in her yard and they planted 33 shrubs.

�They created a beautiful water wise garden,� she said.

�I just want to show my appreciation.

�They even come back every three months to maintain the garden.�

Mrs Hall said her garden now attracted pink and grey galahs, butcher birds and willy wagtails.

�I love watching the birds, they make me laugh,� she said.
