This year the Turkish and Dutch Consulates, together with the Turkish Australian Culture House Inc are collaborating with the Araluen Botanic Park to hold a Turkish and Dutch themed cultural festival during Araluen's Tulip Festival. Each year volunteers are invited to help plant the tulip bulbs. This year there are a record 120,000 tulips to plant. Planting is held at 9am on the 24th and 25th of May and again on the 7th and 8th of June. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
