Awesome autumn bargains

Showing off some of the beautiful plants that will be on sale this Saturday are (l-r) Lismore Challenge supervisor Paul Brown and employees Andrew Clapham and Steven Dodd.

The employees of Lismore Challenge have been busy cultivating plants at their City Farm nursery for their Awesome Autumn Sale this Saturday, April 1, at the organisations headquarters in East Lismore.

Lismore Challenge employs more than 90 people with disabilities, and all proceeds from the sale will be used for training programs and skill development for the workers.

The sale will feature dozens of native and exotic shrubs and trees, with nothing priced over $5. The nursery opens at 8am and people can enjoy a sausage sizzle and a cuppa after grabbing themselves a bargain.

You can literally fill up your boot for next to nothing all the plants are at wholesale prices or below so its perfect for landscapers, home gardeners or community groups who are embarking on a garden project, said Lismore Challenge operations manager, Neil Moreton. Well also have some surplus plant and equipment for sale including ride-on mowers, bruchcutters, trailers and so on. Its usually a very popular sale, so we advise people to get in early so they dont miss out.

Lismore Challenge is at 47 Caldwell Avenue, East Lismore, but entry to the nursery this year is via College Street. Simply drive to Mine and Garys Ampol on Wyrallah Road and follow the signs.
