Wellness Garden survives the heat

On 01 March, the Bellingen Courier-Sun published our good news story …

The hard work of our gardening volunteers paid off, and the Patient Wellness Garden survived water restrictions and multiple heatwaves.  And this year, the Volunteer Appreciation Day Morning Tea is to be held in the garden. It’s great to see the garden being used and appreciated.

Letter from Bellingen Shire Council …

In January, Bellingen Shire Council wrote to BHAG commending us on our exemplary delivery of the Environmental Levy Community Fund Project – the Patient Wellness Garden at Bellingen Hospital.  We were thrilled to receive this letter, and heard on the grapevine that ours  was the best documented community project ever!
