Vivid gets advice from the herb experts

By Lachlan Durling

VIVID'S Seed to Sell group had advice from the professionals recently as they called on the Echuca Herb Group.

The groups came together with the herb group giving the Vivid team the lowdown on what fresh produce to grow and how to grow it.

The advice also came with a $100 donation for Vivid to purchase new plants, with both groups agreeing it was a bit of positive news in a very difficult time.

“The Echuca Herb Group had much pleasure visiting Vivid, sharing their hospitality, our garden knowledge and financial assistance." Echuca Herb Group president Nancye Smith said.

Vivid chief executive Scott Alexander said the event represented another positive community relationship the organisation has.

“Vivid is very fortunate to have the support of many community groups and businesses and we were thrilled to welcome the Echuca Herb Group to our Seed to Sell program recently,” he said.

“Their knowledge on growing fresh produce is immense and very much welcomed by our staff and the people we support.

“Skill development is an essential part of the work we do for people with disability and we’re so pleased to call on local knowledge to help in this area.

“The financial contribution from the group adds another layer to the partnership and means we’ll be able to buy new seedlings for our garden.”
