A seed of tranquillity for Geographe Bay Centre
Posted: 7 February 2018
Busselton Hospice Care Inc has installed a 22,500-litre water tank and water pump into the Geographe Bay Centre garden with thanks to Busselton Water’s Community Partnership Program.
For almost 30 years, Busselton Hospice Care has been dedicated to supporting the best possible end-of-life care to the local community. Its newly-refurbished garden is used by visitors to provide a tranquil environment whilst accessing bereavement and carer support services.
Busselton Water CEO Chris Elliott said the corporation was proud to partner with Busselton Hospice Care to provide funding towards the water tank to ensure the garden is 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,” Mr Elliott 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… We’re delighted to support initiatives like this,” Mr Elliott added.
The Manager of Geographe Bay Centre’s Busselton Hospice Care, Judy Waterman, said the garden’s future looks bright.
“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.”
This is the second round of Busselton Water’s Community Partnership Program. This year, the local water corporation is investing more than $10,000 across seven local organisations.
The program is part of the corporation’s commitment to investing in local grassroots organisations.
