The Olives Open Day, part of the Open Gardens SA scheme, was a resounding success. A total of 864 people visited the garden over the Mothers’ Day weekend. Our share of gate takings, plus profits from the sausage sizzle, soup kitchen and coffee stalls, totalled $3500 which has been donated to FOP Australia.

Our thanks to everyone who supported the Open Day, especially Tracy Taylor and her team of dedicated helpers who manned the gates and the stalls. Their assistance was much needed and very much appreciated.
