Fundraising is a perpetual issue for volunteer community groups and the garden is no exception. The water bill is our major annual outlay, and then there’s the rent for the land, maintenance and upkeep, and inputs – mulch, etc. Not small change.
In the past we’ve done dinners, workshops, open gardens, etc. as well as grown a bit of garlic for sale. This year we are putting all our eggs in the Newstead Live! basket. Along with the annual garlic selling stall, we’ll also host a music event in the garden – Morning Tea with the Zamponistas, plus we’ll have a fantastic garden themed raffle with tickets for sale over the weekend (and the one before).
Please support our fundraising efforts over 26 – 28 January.
