Our Exciting 2020 Project
An all weather environment is needed to enable our upgraded education program to be rolled out.
Currently our SHBG volunteers are masters of tent city – they erect tents to provide adequate ‘suitable environment of the day’ to visiting school children, however on occasion the weather is too severe even for tents, so the school visit has to be cancelled.
An all weather education facility will allow delivery of education projects for our children, regardless of the weather. Hands on learning all year, during school holidays, out of the weather, in a well-equipped building with a garden backdrop, is essential for both our children and the gardens.
The Education Centre is ready to GO – we just need the money.
Our Vision is ‘to be the leader in displaying and researching both exotic and native flora of the Southern Highlands; advancing the knowledge of horticulture, conservation and sustainability to the wider community’.
