Students volunteers transform garden

Updated: Mar 11, 2019

The awesome volunteer crew from Arana College who spent a day of their first week in Dunedin volunteering at the Valley Project.

They certainly put in a good day of hard work! There was gravel to remove and wheelbarrow down to the pot holes in the carpark, the back garden behind the community rooms was seriously in need of some weeding and then they laid out all the mulch.

While they worked there was a lot of discussion about how to wear your toga to avoid mishap, whether getting hit by eggs would hurt and how it felt to leave home and come live in a new city.

There tends to be a lot of negative news about students in the city but what we saw was a bunch of young people embracing their new home and helping out in their new community!

The back garden now looks fantastic and should stay weed free for quite some time.
