The absolute legends at Ballarat Group Training have donated a storage space for us in their new home in Barkly street in the old Ballarat Secondary College building.
This building was originally the Ballarat East Town Hall, the Ballarat Girls’ School and then used as a School of Mines Ballarat satellite site.
We are thrilled to be a part of this building and its rich history.
BGT have subleased other parts of the building to the Ballarat Wholefoods Collective and the Ballarat Regional Multicultural Council, among others, and we’re very excited to be in such good company.
We hope to work with the other groups and collaborate as much as possible.
We are so excited to have a central storage space for all of the THO equipment that can be easily accessed by all of our Harvest Leaders.
It will be especially useful for items that we don’t use frequently, such as jars, jam making equipment, and pruning gear.
We are so grateful to BGT for their support of The Hidden Orchard.
Every new connection we make and every new supporter makes our job that much easier and is such an encouragement!
