Held twice a year, the ABC Gardeners’ Market has raised over $275,000 for South Australian charities since its inception over 20 years ago. All proceeds collected on April 11 will support the Legacy Club of Adelaide and their work with South Australian families of incapacitated and deceased veterans.
The market will also support the Sampson Flat Bushfire Recovery Centre’s efforts to restore the gardens of those affected by the recent fires. Those who wish to donate are encouraged to leave their plants at our car park collection point.
Gates to the ABC Collinswood studio car park at 85 North East Road open to the public at 8am and close at 1pm. Entry is by gold coin donation.
