Opening a Community Garden tales a lot of effort from a core group of volunteers. And it also requires a considerable budget to buy materials, build our raised planter boxes, arrange water, signage etc. So we need to raise funds to do all this and we rely on our fantastic sponsors and donors who have offered to help us.
Prospect Wines of Blackburn created our new logo and printed signs and stickers at no charge. They also helped with subsidised prices for our successful wine fundraisers.
Bunnings Rosebud have been excellent by adding us to their roster of weekend sausage sizzles, donating all the seedlings for our 1st planting, and donating materials to help with our stage 2 build. Their community involvement is superb and often goes unnoticed.
Peninsula Bulk Meats have supplied us with first class sausages for our sausage sizzles with a generous discount. They are located at 16/18 Henry Wilson Drive, West Rosebud and are open 7 days a week.
Blairgowrie Pharmacy have kindly donated to us a first aid kit and sunscreen for the safety of our members. For the best friendly and efficient service go and see Jia and his staff.
Pope donated two 30 metre garden hoses with fittings and hand sprays to replace our original second hand and broken old hoses. This will allow us to keep our garden well watered.
Davey Pumps have been very generous with their donation of a new water pump to connect our 22,500 litre water tank to our garden.
Davey is Australia and New Zealand's international water products company.
PIPES in Dromana are our local distributors for Davey Pumps and arranged with them for the supply of our new water tank pump. Mark at PIPES has been very supportive of our project.

Mornington Peninsula with 55 years of experience. They have very generously donated and installed our truck access gate on our west fence. This now allows us have trucks deliver supplies direct into the garden.
