We are once again looking for donations of fresh lemons for our homemade lemonade stall and pre-loved books for the Market stall. 

Any donations are most welcome. 

Lemons: Please drop off your lemons to the Food Room in the View Street Senior School building, below reception. Any donations are much appreciated.

Books: Please drop off any pre-loved books to the PLC Maintenance Department, 10 View Street, Peppermint Grove any time during Term 4. Books only, no magazines, videos or DVDs.


Volunteers are an essential part of the event and without the help of many volunteers the event would not go ahead. If you can volunteer your time to assist on the day please complete the Volunteer Registration Form.

There are various roles and shifts available and we will endeavour to try to roster parents with children in the same year groups together, so you will get the opportunity to meet and work with parents in the same cohort.

There is also free entry to the gardens before and after your shift for all volunteers.
