It's time for us to come clean. (Part One)

Travis Fitch

This year, we can answer the "Why 12?" question. Not only that, but the answer doesn't involve linguistic gymnasts to make it stick. The 'why' fits as though it was tailored; it's far from being a single season garment or even undersized activewear sold by Red Dot. The answer to "Why 12?" feels ready for a lifetime's wear.

As he graduates from primary school, he is a markedly different young man than the nervous boy who first walked into the 12 Buckets room in 2014.

Melinda Tognini

As 2016 draws to a close, 12 Buckets will farewell a number of students as they graduate from primary school and head off to high school.

Now, money raised from our Bassendean on the Green concert will enable 12 Buckets to expand its program into high schools in 2017. This will mean that, instead of saying goodbye, we'll be able to continue walking alongside students through their teenage years.

Another new initiative is our Junior Ambassador program and it's our great delight to introduce one of our inaugural ambassadors ...

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: 12 Trees for 12 Buckets!

Melinda Tognini

We are thrilled to say, we achieved this goal!! We've have left it up for you to read about and we will provide more updates soon!!

Marion Ferguson's earliest memory is of sitting on the ground at Shark Bay, eye level with thousands of everlasting daisies. She's been fascinated by plants ever since, so much so, that she has spent most of her adult life either as a gardener or working in nurseries.

Now, she's using her green thumb to transform the garden at Balga Primary School and to share her gardening knowledge with a group of 12 Buckets students.
