This week the Aranda Afters community said goodbye to one of our beloved staff members, Jarrod. We enjoyed a delicious sausage sizzle and participated in a game of softball. We also had a big day enjoying our new garden, and we said a massive thank you to Cally Brennan from Canberra Permaculture Design for volunteering her time and enthusiasm to assist in creating our amazing garden for all of us to enjoy! A homemade salsa was created out of the vegetables and herbs that the kids collected from the Afters garden. We also enjoyed a wide range of activities including lots of designing paper aeroplanes, creating Lego houses, cars (and even pineapples!), and making really big marble runs.
