Recently parks Victoria staff celebrated RUOK day by volunteering at Samaritan House. The day was spent tending to the vegetable garden and planting new trees (fruit trees kindly donated by Wombat Gully Plant farm).

Organiser Kathy Turner commented after event "Josephine, the volunteer coordinator at Samaritan House welcomed us with muffins and a hot cuppa.  It was a pleasure to be able to help out with the planting and general tidy up in the garden and we had help from a couple of the residents. Staff gave me positive feedback on the day and would like to be involved in future volunteer days".
