On completing this detailed garden within an existing well established 5 acre garden my clients and I saw the opportunity to open the garden up to the public which they had generously done in the past to raise money for a chosen charity.
A committee was formed consisting of friends and family to put on a gala evening along with 2 open garden weekends. The Guide Dogs were selected as the chosen charity which rely on the support of others to operate. It costs over $30,000.00 to train a guide dog and we saw this as a great opportunity help provide much need funds. At the end of the gala evening and the 2 open garden weekends the total funds raised was just over $300,000 which was very rewarding for all involved but mostly for Guide Dogs NSW.
