Vinnies Visit to Project Butterfly Gardens
On Wednesday 14 June, the St. Joseph Vinnies visited the Project Butterfly Gardens where we met with Rebekah Joy, the lovely lady behind the set up of the memorial path. Rebekah was able to share with us as to how Project Butterfly came about and how the project has evolved along the way touching lives not only in our local community but in other parts of New Zealand where for example in Wellington and Christchurch people have been inspired to set up their own memorial gardens. Rebekah has also received inquiries from other countries such as Australia as to how people can get projects like this underway. From what has started out from a story of personal grief, many lives have been touched - it has been a project that like the beautiful butterflies that are displayed has really taken flight along the way.
