3 ways to support our Garage Sale and raise $ for your garden!

Our first garden fundraising event for the year is going to be a big one, but only with your help! 

Time to sort through your clothes, clean out your bookshelves, and dust off those items in the garage. 

It’s time for the 

West Brunswick Community Garden’s first garage sale

Saturday 25 October! 

The fundraiser is part of the Garage Sale Trail being organised for this date. Lots of people go around the sales on the day so we hope to get lots of people visiting us. 

Here's what you need to do:

1. Save things for us to sell and drop them off on Friday 24th Oct

Get together your plants, books, CDs, DVDs, clothes, kids stuff, and your unwanted clutter (but not rubbishy or broken stuff) and bring it all down to the garden on Friday 24 October (sorry we can’t accept donations before this date – we don’t have a lot of storage space).

If you have a particularly interesting item for sale please email a photo to so we can promote it.

2. Volunteer to collect money or show people around the garden on the day

Please volunteer for the day by emailing us at 

3. Most importantly - Promote the day

Share it on Facebook, send emails, print off and put up posters at work, in your area – whatever your medium we need lots of people to come through the gates.

Here's a bit of a blurb you can use, modify and send to work colleagues, friends and family:
