12 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 18, 2009 MB NEWS New garden grows Anthony Albanese, Justine Elliot and Alison Easton in the garden. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~P0643369 THE Ella Centre in Haberfield has opened its new sensory garden. Developed with the help of Sydney University's oc- cupational therapy students, the garden will provide an interactive out- door environment for people with dementia, sen- sual impairment and intel- lectual disabilities. Minister for Ageing Justine Elliot and Grayndler Federal MP and Infrastructure Minister Anthony Albanese of- ficially opened the garden last week. It features a range of plants including native flora, vegetables and plants with intense smell, and has diverse surfaces such as rock, straw, mulch and woodchips. ''The garden is circular because a lot of people with dementia like moving around,'' Ella executive of- ficer Alison Easton said. The Federal and State governments' Home and Community Care program provided $29,250 for the garden. The Federal Government also provided $18,000 for Ella's other program, D-Caff, which provides social interaction once a month for people with de- mentia in the format of a friendly cafe. It also facili- tates an information and support network for famil- ies and carers. -- Work experience student TOM GEBA BIRKENHEAD POINT SHOPPING CENTRE Shop 113 (opposite Coles) Ph: 9819 6507 SILVERBEET TAYLOR LEE MANDARINS CAULIFLOWERS KIWI FRUIT FRESHquality always at low PRICES 99c bunch $199each $199 8 pack Convenient Parking Specials are valid from Thurs 18th till Sunday 20th June, 2009 or until stocks last $199 per kilo 2029204i iww wk51
