A bit of FOHP legacy! Above is the very first picture of the Councillor Kinehan and members of the Harfield community planting a thorn tree in Princes Park. This event was the very start of the process that led to the legal formation of the FOHP after several public meetings.
Thanks to HVA Chairperson James Fernie for suggesting the picture, and for the generous donation the HVA made to the FOHP to continue our operations.
Request for donations
The Friends of Harfield Park are funded primarily through donations, and the money we are able to raise at the Harfield Village Carnival. While we did indeed raise a lot of money at this year’s Carnival, we do have a lot of ongoing projects that require funding and resources. If you are able to donate to us, your money will go to the following:
• Picking up litter and dog waste
• Acquiring new plants and trees for the parks
• Maintaining and improving the pathways
• New large-scale projects, such as purchasing a water tank for additional irrigation during the summer months, and possible water-permeable pathways for the parks
Please consider contributing to our efforts to keep our parks clean and thriving by setting up a monthly donation or donating once-off via the Snapscan below.
