Will you tiptoe through the tulips?
That said, Araluen Botanic Park and now calling on volunteers to plant what they call a ‘modest scale of tulip planting’ on May 29 & 30 and June 12 & 13 from 9.30am to around 12pm.
Rod Ross, park general manager, says: “In keeping with previous practice we are inviting the broader community to volunteer their services to assist in the bulb planting process. Many have become regulars and most consider it to be a novel, educational and enjoyable wholesome family outing.
“Just imagine the satisfaction that participants experience when returning to Araluen in spring to see the bulbs they planted in full bloom.”
Volunteers are encouraged to bring suitable gardening clothes, gloves and kneepads. Planting tools are provided and simple instructions are demonstrated on site.
