This year, The Open Midlands Gardens and Open Gardens of South Africa teams created the Great Little Gardens route to show off 20 small gardens. The visitor turnout was amazing, with R21 500 raised in support of local non-profit organisation, PADCA.
CEO of PADCA, Trevor Clowes, commented “We had an amazing weekend meeting with and chatting to all the gardeners and their families; it was a great opportunity for us to get out there and talk to people about what we do to champion for and celebrate the elders in our communities. We are blown away by the amount raised and so grateful! Without the support of our communities we cannot do the work we do love to do, take care of our seniors.”
