Queensland Floods, Orders, Fund Raiser

Thank you to those customers who have emailed regarding the flooding in Queensland right now. We did have a cyclone on Christmas Day, followed by torrential rain, but no flooding. Spiral Garden is located on a farm in the mountains west of Cairns, Far North Queensland. Thankfully, we are not in a flood-affected area.

To those of you who have had to wait for your recent orders, due to road closures because of the flooding, we thank you for your patience. Australia Post recommended to me that we keep your parcels high and dry here in our office, and we have contacted each of you to check that was okay. We will attempt tomorrow to post any orders we have waiting here, if it looks like the situation may improve enough over the weekend.

Spiral Garden has decided to donate 50% of all order totals (before freight) from midnight Thursday 13th January until midday Sunday 16th January to the Australian Red Cross' disaster relief and recovery appeal. The Red Cross are renowned for making a real difference during times of crisis. So if you're planning to buy your back-to-school items, summer holiday craft items, gifts, magazines and subscriptions or art supplies - now is a great time to order and help flood-affected families at the same time.
