garden RELEAF weekend, which will be held on the weekend of March 7-8 2015, will see 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 so it will be a weekend themed around ‘Something Blue’.
Many Independent Garden Centres across the country will be 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 will be a gold coin donation to beyondblue.
The garden centres that are taking part will be gearing 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 will also be balloons for the kids and many other ideas. Some centres will even have Tai Chi or exercise sessions happening. There are a number of zany ideas yet to be confirmed but they will all be listed on this website by late December 2014, early January 2015.
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.
