Thank you to all the local shop owners who helped to advertise and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the Galston Open Gardens such a success. Over $50,000 was raised for charity this year, which includes the Buddhist Gardens that were also opened in September. This is divided up carefully to major charities. Thank you to all our visitors who came from far and wide to visit us here in Galston. A big thank you to Bendigo Bank who sponsored our garden brochures. They donated $3,000. It was wonderful to have the RHS and Rose Society put their first Horticultural and Rose Show on at the Galston Community Centre during the Galston Open Garden Weekend ,which show pieced floral arrangements, rose blooms and horticultural specimens. It was a great added attraction to the weekend for visitors.
