Tour group/Volunteer head quarters
Greener Pastures Farm Animal Sanctuary is becoming more popular. We are experiencing an increase in visitors, volunteers and tour groups particularly for the purposes of animal therapy eg: schools, ASeTTS, Alzheimers WA , Disability Services etc. and the numbers continue to rise.
We required a dedicated sheltered area for these visitors. COLAB provided us with a structural engineer that enabled us to get our plans through council.
We are now building our shelter.
