Community Alliances

Eden Gardens is actively involved in the community and encourages members of the public staff and suppliers to join in our endeavours. We hold four fundraising morning teas every year to support our chosen charities and these are run with the help of 20 local community volunteers. Contact us if you would like to become an Eden Volunteer or for more information.

Through fundraising and remembrance functions, we are engaging the community and proudly supporting the work of Cancer Council Victoria, with funds being directed towards support services, education programs and research.  Approximately a hundred daffodil bulbs were planted in our memorial garden this year, in memory of people who have been touched by cancer. Each year we will host two community teas to raise funds for Cancer Council Victoria and to encourage our customers and suppliers to support these events.
