Music and Arts in the Garden 2018

We are committed to raising funds for Benalla and Wangaratta Hospitals, and Cancer Council Victoria with regular Open Gardens. October 2018 we showcased the Spring display of tulips, daffodils, salvias and many other flowering shrubs and bulbs. We raised $7, 500 for the charities.

During 2018's Open Garden on 6th and 7th October, artisans exhibit their latest works and sold to the Birchwood visitors. Plant and Craft stalls. Local  Music Students performed in the garden over the weekend.
