Gardening is more than just fun, it’s a way to relax and detach from the everyday. Research proves that being outdoors can significantly improve your quality of life. As such, Independent Garden Centres across Australia will be hosted a united fundraising effort over Saturday 7th March and Sunday 8th March called ‘garden RELEAF‘.
The objective of garden RELEAF is to raise awareness of the joys and health benefits of gardening, along with fundraising for beyondblue, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to continued support and building community awareness of anxiety, depression and suicide in our local communities.
So SAVE THE DATE and visit a participating Garden Centre on Saturday 7th March and Sunday 8th March and be part of the solution to fighting anxiety, depression and suicide in our community.
