A 22,500 litre water tank and water pump has been installed at Busselton Hospice Care Inc’s Geographe Bay Centre to assist with the beautification of their garden.
The installation of the tank is part of Busselton Water’s Community Partnership Program.
Geographe Bay Centre Busselton Hospice Care manager Judy Waterman said the addition of the tank would see the garden flourish.
“We are grateful for Busselton Water’s support – and proud to be able to offer this waterwise
garden surrounding our community facility and to share it with our visitors,” she said.
Busselton Hospice Care has provided end-of-life care to the local community for 30 years.
The newly-refurbished garden is used by visitors to provide a tranquil environment whilst accessing bereavement and carer support services.
Busselton Water chief executive officer Chris Elliott said the corporation was proud to partner with Busselton Hospice Care to provide funding towards the water tank to ensure the garden was well maintained.
“It’s wonderful to contribute to an organisation that not only provides such a vital service in our community, but is also dedicated to sustainability,” he said.
“Busselton Water’s contribution has ensured earlier work by a local gardening volunteer group and environmental botanist to re-establish the Geographe Bay Centre’s waterwise garden will be sustained into the future.”
The program is part of the corporation’s commitment to investing in local grassroots organisations.
This year, Busselton Water is investing more than $10,000 across seven local organisations.
