Waratah Day - 14 October

Waratah Day - 14 October

Get out your secateurs and join us for a special fundraiser in the NSW Southern Highlands!

Our friends from New South Publishing - Elspeth, Pam and John - are opening their beautiful Waratah Farm in Wingello, NSW.

You can pick seven beautiful waratahs for $25 on Sunday 14 October and all proceeds will be donated to our work in remote communities.

"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, ILF Supporter and Waratah Grower at Wombat Lane Farm
