garden RELEAF 2016 information will be announced in coming months after we carefully assess results from 2015. Thank you to everyone involved. We are delighted to advise that over $60,000 was raised for beyondblue.

garden RELEAF weekend, was held on the weekend of March 7-8 2015, and saw Independent Garden Centres around Australia running fun and informative events to encourage people to get into the garden and get planting. As gardening is good for both physical and mental health, we have chosen to use the weekend to support beyondblue it was a weekend themed around ‘Something Blue’.

Many Independent Garden Centres across the country were running Mini Gardener sessions, encouraging kids to get planting by helping them plant their own flower or vegetable seedlings which they can then take home to grow. The only cost was a gold coin donation to beyondblue.

The garden centres that took part geared much of the activities towards a ‘Something Blue’ theme with displays of blue flowering plants, blueberries, blue giftware and more. Others will have cakes or muffins with blue icing, scones with blueberry jam and other blue-themed delicacies.

There was balloons for the kids and many other ideas. There are a number of zany ideas all listed on this website soon.

Botanica World Discoveries have provided customers with a chance to enter our Competition and win a $4,950 travel voucher. Entry details in-store from February 1, 2015 at participating garden centres.

The benefits of contact with nature for mental health and wellbeing will be demonstrated on this weekend. Come along with friends and family and help us raise funds for beyondblue.
