hope springs Mental Health Program

The hope springs Bush Tucker Community Garden is flourishing, but is always in need of more volunteers.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 10am – 12 noon. No experience is necessary – just enthusiasm!

Contact hope springs if you would like to join the Gardening Group, or just turn up.

Follow the garden on Instagram too!

Spring has sprung and the Monday Music Group is out in the sun!

We also began to explore marimbas again after what seems like YEARS since we’ve been able to use the music room for marimbas and percussion.. yay!

Our Bush Tucker Garden

‘Our Creative Community’

Recently, some hope springs staff and volunteers came together to prepare beautiful care packages for hope springs participants who have been struggling with lockdown.

Sixty care packages were prepared, which included a greeting card, a poem on a painting (written and painted by one of our volunteers), biscuits from church volunteer bakers, a lovely cake of soap, a coffee sachet, a can of soft drink, a chocolate and a fresh mango. Some participants also received a handmade boomerang bag, very kindly donated by Watsonia Neighbourhood House.

The care packages were distributed by hope springs staff, Jon Rumble and JJ, in mid-October and they have already received many appreciative messages from recipients.
