Helping hand for Harmony Day

LOCAL students celebrated Harmony Day by getting their hands dirty with a little help from Alpine Shire Council.

Council donated hundreds of flower bulbs to all schools and kindergartens in the Alpine Shire, inviting them to create their own special “Harmony Gardens” on Wednesday, 21 March.

Council’s Youth Development Officer Lili Korndorffer said each child had the chance to plant a bulb.

“Harmony Gardens represent cultural and community diversity and it’s a great thing for our children to be involved in creating them,” she said.

“By planting Harmony Gardens children are encouraged to consider what cultural and community diversity means to them.”

The bulbs include daffodils, jonquils and tulips and will provide stunning colour to the gardens when they bloom.

They join the masses of bulbs planted by Council and the community last year, currently lying dormant in town garden beds, public spaces and private gardens in preparation for creating an impressive Alpine Shire-wide display throughout winter and spring.
