A community garden has celebrated the generosity and hard work of its volunteers after notching a donation milestone. Thommo’s Community Garden volunteers and committee members gathered at the garden on Robertson Drive last Wednesday for a morning tea to celebrate making 10 years worth of weekly donations to Foodbank Bunbury. Thommo’s Community Garden volunteers help grow fresh fruit and vegetables, which are then donated to Foodbank Bunbury each week to help provide food relief to charities and schools in the South West. Hundreds of kilograms of food are delivered to the Foodbank Bunbury branch each month with Foodbank Bunbury distributing food to underprivileged people and acting as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. Those charities include the In Town Centre, AccordWest, Food for Life in Collie, St Vincent de Paul and Foster Families South West. Foodbank Bunbury’s Leonie Jane presented Thommo’s Community Garden committee members and volunteers with a certificate of appreciation during the morning tea. “Our customers highly value the produce supplied by Thommo’s — the food is of very high quality,” she said. “The fresh produce donations enable our customers to have access to nutritious food.” Thommo’s Community Garden started out as the vision of John and Colin Thomson — two brothers who dreamed and worked towards creating a garden space to provide a sanctuary for individuals, families and organisations from Bunbury to come together and grow organic produce in a beautiful setting.
