Building Fund

The Southern Highlands Botanic Gardens are a community operated and funded garden. With no financial support from the Wingecarribee Shire Council we rely on donations and grant money to establish and maintain the gardens and to undertake development projects. From time to time, SHBG will identify a particular project and will campaign for funding to support that project.
