  • Member's fees cover our running costs for the centre. If we wish to make any improvements to the centre, we have to apply for Grants and fundraise to cover costs. We can also reduce costs via member's volunteer labour and donations of materials from local businesses.

    In 2019, we are fundraising to create a Sensory Garden filled with edible Native plants. We have received quotes for $10,000 to $40,000 to do this, though we hope some plants and mulch can be donated to lower costs. Members assisting with labour (e.g. planting and mulch spreading) will also help to keep costs down.
