Event description

Description

You are invited to come and pick waratahs in Wingello in the Southern Highlands.

"As a teenager I lived on Mount Keira near Wollongong where waratahs grow naturally. I always loved them and in the spring of 1997 I decided to plant two hundred waratahs on the property my husband and I have. Each year I planted a few more until there were seven hundred plants, with many different varieties, including white ones. At first I had the crazy dream of supplying waratahs for the winners’ posies at the Sydney Olympics. Then for several years we supplied local florists, a flower wholesaler and gave huge bunches to friends."
- Pam Menzies, Owner - Wombat Lane Farm

All proceeds will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to help raise literacy levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians living in remote communities.
