Here in Queensland we have just has two elections within a month, which means fund raising opportunities for the school! I think running a little stall is superb I love playing shop. At the first election I was involved in the plant stall. A month before the election we brought punnets of seedling for our local nursery, repotted them into larger pots, nurtured them and watched them grow.
We offered Veggie Patch plants, mainly herbs and tomatoes and a few beneficial insect attracting flowers. Our most popular plant was coriander followed by basil and marigolds.
