SEEDs Communal Garden Fundraiser

Part of the 'Garage Sale Trail', SEEDs annual 'Rummage Sale' Fundraiser! Come and support the garden by buying pre loved treasures! Rummage through a giant garage sale donated by our community.

Eat a sizzling sausage or sweet corn on the cob, followed by a baked good and coffee from Vagabond Coffee van. We have also been working hard making homemade goodies-seedlings, beeswax wraps, painted pots, gardener's hand cream and more.

Or just come and check out the garden and enjoy some live music on the grass.
Hope to see you there and that the sun will be shining!
