Service users and staff of Interaction Disability Services took part in a potting workshop to help raise awareness of people with a disability on November 27.
The workshop, called ‘Don’t Dis my Ability,’ was held at Bunnings Warehouse Castle Hill.
Bunnings team members taught the participants the secrets to potting plants and encouraged them to get creative through painting their individual pots, all in the name of learning the benefits of gardening.
Belinda Ajepoor, program coordinator at Interaction Disability Services said: ‘‘Interaction pursues the support of local communities in its efforts to improve the lives of people with a disability and their networks’’.
‘‘We are really excited by the opportunity to partner with Bunnings to promote the Don’t Dis my Ability initiative,’’ she said.
Based in Castle Hill, Interaction Disability Services aims to provide services to people with a disability, primarily those with an intellectual disability.
