Birchwood's one-acre garden is set in picturesque farmland and rolling hills...


Birchwood’s sole aim is to open the garden for a major fundraising event each year. We love to work and relax in our garden all of the time, and we believe it is a delightful combination of colour, form and beauty. We also love our local hospitals and Cancer Research; therefore; our retirement goal is to keep on improving the garden in order to run a successful Open Garden each year. We donate all of the “Gate” and “Teas” to the following three charities: Benalla Hospital Auxiliary; Friends of Wangaratta Hospital; and, Cancer Council Victoria. The information in this web page explains how you may choose to help our cause.
