Don’t struggle to carry heavy bags of plants and products around the Expo all day.
Leave your purchases at our dedicated Plant Creche and in return for a gold coin donation, you can leave your goods safely with us and collect them before you head home.
We will also have a dedicated Plant Creche vehicle pick up zone opposite the crèche area on Hampden Street for our customers to collect their goods and place straight into their cars. No need to walk long distances with heavy bags.
All money raised will go towards supporting a local charity. The crèche is organised and staffed by volunteers from the local charity group.
