Creating a Sustainable Community Program

Yandina Community Gardens is pleased to offer a series of workshops and garden tours held on Saturdays at YCG. Our new 2016-2017 program includes 2 workshops per month.  This project is supported by the Sunshine Coast Council Grants Program – we acknowledge and thank Council for their ongoing support.  

Please note that we now charge a small fee for our workshops. Of course, if anyone feels inspired to donate more, we will very gratefully accept your generosity!  YCG is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organisation and we always welcome donations and support. All fees and donations go towards the ongoing costs of running YCG and help us to keep offering great workshops with great presenters.
