A bonanza of pot plants from the City of Sydney’s stunning spring floral displays will be up for grabs at Sydney Park on Sunday 12 November 2017 from 8am.
The spring edition of the biannual Living Colour floral display was a major success and the City is committed to recycling every bloom and edible plant.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore said in return for a gold coin donation, Sydneysiders could choose from pots of Italian parsley, Vietnamese mint, geraniums, petunias, snapdragons and more, with all proceeds going to the RSPCA.
The City will also donate plants and soil to schools, day care centres and community gardens across the local government area.
“It’s fantastic to see Sydneysiders recycle, repot and care for these plants, which add so much colour to our streets and then residents’ homes once the exhibition is complete,” the Lord Mayor said.
“Each gold coin donation helps raise vital funds for the RSPCA, helping them provide care and protect some of the most vulnerable animals in our community.”
Living Colour has coloured Sydney’s streets for the last 10 years and uses water-wise, native and edible plants which are always re-homed or composted after the event. The displays are designed and installed by a team of specialist horticulturalists, and the flowers are grown locally in NSW.
