A week ago Jeanette Martin was all smiles as one of the recipients of this year’s World Environment Day Awards.
Today however she is dealing with the fact that the office at the Mullumbimby Community Gardens has burned down during the night.
Jeanette is waiting for police to examine the site to establish the cause of the fire.
But she told Echonetdaily some smaller fires had also broken out at the gardens on the same night.
‘Losing records, files, a colour photocopier and other valuable equipment at a time when the many volunteers are gearing up for this year’s Living Earth Festival is devastating’, said Ms Martin.
‘We are hoping there may be some community support for rebuilding our office. Tax deductible donations can be made to our Bunya Sustainability Fund via our website www.mullumbimbycommunitygardens.org or by calling Jeanette on 0412322255.’
