Hot on the heels of the Friends’ Garden atop Dairy Farmers Hill, Friends' Council has determined that it would be highly appropriate to turn the group’s sights towards sponsorship of a Zigzag Garden in the Central Valley.
Friends have chosen to sponsor Garden #19, the Saltbush Garden, along the Zigzag walkway of the Central Valley. It will make a stunning foreground vista looking towards the Village Centre and from it. Our aim is to raise $50,000 – the cost of this Garden
Launched at the 13 November Friends’ General Meeting, this major fund-raiser needs your help to make it a reality! To kick start the launch of the Garden, the Friends' Council have committed $5,000.
We are now looking for donations from the Friends' community: family, friends, work colleagues and indeed the public to help this become a reality.
This is an exclusive opportunity to continue to demonstrate the Friends’ passion to support the development of the Arboretum and progress the vision of 100 Forests – 100 Gardens, the title of the winning entry for the creation and development of the Arboretum. This is a part of the larger National Arboretum of Canberra project to develop the Central Valley.
Give a gift of colour, movement, fragrance and beauty – all gifts to the Friends' Zigzag Garden greater than $2 are tax deductible.
Go to the Zigzag Garden link - and check out Learn More too, where you can see how much of the $50,000 has been committed.
