Congratulations to the lucky winners of the Snag Island Community Garden raffle! Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket to help support us. It really meant a lot.

2nd prize winner was Janette Ebbers from Holmview QLD
3rd Prize winner was Katrina Willouhby from Leeman WA
4th prize winner was Daytan Milne from Hamersley WA
The full draw was broadcast live and can be watched here.
Yesterday we saw great progress happening down at the garden.
Members and volunteers turned up to help erect a shade-house as well as a Gazebo/BBQ area.
If you have any shade-cloth that you can donate then please let us know so that we can cover our shade-house to make it complete.
We normally don's take pictures of the people helping as they don't want their pictures posted onto social media for privacy reasons.
Don't forget to buy some raffle tickets in our Thermomix raffle which is being drawn tonight.
Good luck everyone in the draw.

A little progress down at the community garden today. We now have 9 chickens and they seem to be loving their new home :)
Thanks to Jason (aka Binny) for all of your help today. Total legend mate :)
Lorraine for catching the chickens and transporting them. We couldn't have done it without you.
Dave for painting the sign as well as creating a driveway and making sure that the chicken pen was ready. (might be a good idea next time to wear some sun cream!)
A special shout out to Doug and his awesome crew from DC Tree Services that relocated the chicken pen to the garden as well as dropping off some tin so that we can start making our garden beds. A job well done and very much appreciated.
