In April, one of Yooralla’s residential homes was featured on the ABC TV's Gardening Australia program after being invited by residents to help them build some garden beds as part of their new accessible garden.

Hosts Costa Georgiadis and Jane Edmanson spent two days at the site helping residents to plant vegetables in their new raised garden beds and lay the paving to make the area more accessible.

Costa summed up Yooralla’s work perfectly: “They’re an organisation that supports people with disabilities to live fulfilling and independent lives out in the community”.

The residents thoroughly enjoyed the visit and new garden space is fast becoming a favourite spot for them to spend their time.

Jane has already been invited back for a salad lunch using the vegetables planted by Costa and the team.

Watch the full episode on ABC iView or the segment on the Gardening Australia website. You can read more about Jane and Costa's visit here.
