The staff felt the addition of the planter boxes would enhance the residents’ lives.

After a month’s preparation and planning, work began with four men taking two months (two days a week) to complete the project. Les, Vic, John and Steve are very proud of their work. They have used their skills to produce something very special.

The result was four professionally made planter boxes.

Casters were an addition to make it easier to move the boxes around once filled with plants.

“The boxes are made from recycled spotted gum,” said Vic Logie from the Men’s Shed.

“We rescued some decking.”

“They have come up beautifully and the timber is really special. They look great.”

The staff at Peter Sinclair were ecstatic to receive them.

“They are just what we wanted,” said Jill Humphries.

“Two will be used in the home’s lounge room. Two will be used as a divider for the special care ward.

“Now I just need to get the plants to fill them.”

A really worthwhile project for the Tea Gardens Men’s Shed and a great result for Peter Sinclair Gardens.
