The showcase event is the largest annual fundraiser for the Foundation and Friends of the Gardens, a not for profit membership based organisation that supports horticulture, conservation, scientific research and educations programs within the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney; the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah; and the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan. Proceeds from the sale of works will support the three Botanic Gardens and the local artists.
The nursery of the Foundation and Friends of the RBG will also be open for extended hours during the weekend so you can supplement your artwork with some unusual and interesting plants.
