LOCAL businesses have an opportunity to dig in and grow their community profile by sponsoring the 2019 Douglas Garden Awards.
Douglas Shire Council is calling for sponsors to get involved and make the most of exposure in the local community.
Mayor Julia Leu said local exposure was a fantastic incentive for businesses to support the popular awards.
“The inaugural awards were extremely well received by the community who were enthusiastic about showing off their innovative natural areas,” she said.
“We are offering our local businesses an opportunity to get involved and align their brand with the Douglas Garden Awards.”
ABC Gardening Australia star Costa Georgiadis will again be judging the awards.
There are three packages including Presenting Sponsorship, Gold Sponsorship and Silver Sponsorship.
There are eight categories including:
– Residential Garden
