Seed Donations Request – SA Bushfire Garden Revival – Kangaroo Island

Please see below information from one of our school parents whose daughters, Emilie in Year 2 and Abigail in Reception, are involved in.  If you would like to help out with this fantastic initiative, all donations will be gratefully accepted at the Front Office and passed on to Emilie and Abigail:

SA Bushfire Garden Revival helps to collect and distribute gardening tools, seeds, plants etc to help people affected by fires. Please see attached flyer which states what they do/hope to achieve. They most recently did a plant drop to the Lobethal Recovery Centre which was lovely to read about (the girls dad, Nathan, volunteers with Disaster Relief Australia group and spent a week last year in Lobethal clearing out bushfire debris from what was left of people’s houses/properties. We also met with some people who lost their homes and seeing how tough they are, it was amazing).

They are holding an open day on Kangaroo Island on 22nd May and have called out asking for people to collect some of the Woolworths seeds so they can distribute them out to children on the day.

The girls have started to collect some seeds from others in our community. We have contact details for a volunteer in Happy Valley that will be taking them across to KI for us.

We were wondering if the Craigburn Primary School community might like to help support this initiative by collecting Woolies seeds and/or even new gardening equipment (trowels, forks, gloves, pots etc) for the girls to pass onto this group? Due to biodiversity on KI, they are only permitted to take commercially sealed packets of seeds and new tools/pots etc onto the island.

Kind Regards

Annika, Emilie and Abigail Reinke
