The Mount Lofty Garden Blitz is a great way for the general public to be involved with and contribute to the beautiful Mount Lofty Botanic Garden.

Volunteers work alongside Garden staff and assist with various tasks including mulching, hand weeding, woody weed removal and, especially for this Autumn Blitz, planting up to 1000 daffodil bulbs! This is a great opportunity to meet other Garden enthusiasts, and enjoy a morning in the outdoors with friends and family.

The Blitz begins at 8:30am sharp, and concludes at around midday. After all that hard work, a sausage sizzle is provided to thank volunteers for their time, and give everyone an opportunity to socialise and celebrate the wonderful contribution to the Garden!

“We have hosted a few Garden Blitz days at Mount Lofty Botanic Garden now, and we are always amazed by the significant amount of work achieved by our volunteers. It is great to see past participants who had a great time at previous Blitzes return again, and new volunteers from the community joining us for the first time”, said Botanic Gardens of South Australia Director, Stephen Forbes.

If you would like to make a contribution to the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, whilst enjoying the outdoors and meeting other likeminded people, please register to volunteer today!
