Botanical Zodiacs

What is your zodiac?

We were fortunate to exhibit the beautiful work of Dr Tarn McLean at The Lighthouse Toowoomba's The Write Gallery throughout September 2022, and as a special fundraiser we have gallery posters of the botanical zodiac available. They are the perfect personalised gift and 100% of the proceeds contribute to the free workshops we continue to offer children who need them.
