Landcare celebrates Volunteers and People with a Disability Days

The Geographe Community Landcare Nursery held a special morning tea this week, to celebrate International Volunteers Day and thank volunteers for their hard work.

At their recent annual general meeting, the chairperson Andrew Weinert reported that in the last financial year, the organisation had registered 148 volunteers, recording a total of 11,875 hours.

The nursery's coordinator Rod Cary said around 65 per cent of their volunteers were aged more than 60 years old.

The organisation also recognised another significant group of volunteers to mark the International Day of People with Disability.

"Volunteers of all abilities are welcome. Around 15 per cent of our volunteers have a disability," Mr Cary said.

"Our flexibility has allowed the various nursery groups to determine their preferred day and project which suits many of the volunteers."

The nursery is located 2 kilometres south of the Busselton Bypass at 366 Queen Elizabeth Avenue, just past the Lions Shed and in the Water Corporation property.

It is open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 8am until 4pm, and Wednesdays to Fridays from 9am until 2pm.
