Salamander Recycling Centre and The Shed at Salamander

For those of you who have been checking on the progress of the sensory garden, you may have noticed a number of items that you may never have thought to include in your garden at home.  Jenny and Richard Nicholls have recently been scouring the kerbs of Medowie and Raymond Terrace, with an aim of finding gems from the Council large collection pick up days.

A number of gems have been found, including the fishing poles, kids table and chairs (which is now a teddy bears picnic area) and a number statues.  One such amazing find was the wrought iron ends of an old garden bench.  As you may imagine, these were snapped up very quickly.

The Shed at Salamander, which is located in the grounds of Salamander Bay Recycling , was approached to see if they would make and install wooden slats to bring new life to the garden bench.  They happily agreed, and the bench now sits towards the far end of the garden.  Once the paving area is completed near the garden entrance, the bench will be permanently moved there, with a full view of the length of the garden.

Gerard McClafferty, of Salamander Bay Recycling , has also donated a number of items for the garden.  These include pairs of boots, which have since been painted in bright colours and will become planters in the future.  His daughter’s boots, which he reluctantly parted with, will be part of a fairy garden.

We would like to thank The Shed at Salamander and Salamander Bay Recycling for their support of RDA and our riding and driving programs.
