For the past 20 years, Russell Turner's garden has been his pride and joy.
Boasting 800 trees and thousands of flowers, thanks to spring, the six-acre green space is currently looking its very best.
So when Can Assist president Helen Corby asked Mr Turner and his wife Diane about hosting a garden open day for the charity, the couple were only too happy to oblige.
"They've been so enthusiastic, it's just fabulous," Mrs Corby beamed.
"We can do it because we're outdoors and it's just a really good scenario.... Whatever happens we should hopefully be able to go ahead. So I'm very excited."
Like most grassroot not-for-profits during the latest COVID outbreak, the organisation which provides financial assistance, support and accommodation to people in regional NSW affected by cancer, has been doing it tough.
"We had four events organised and we had to cancel three of those [because of COVID], but we thought this one should still go ahead because it's outdoors," Mrs Corby said.
"The only fundraising we've basically been allowed to do for the last 12 months is [looking after] the Return and Earn kiosk, so it's been a pretty sad year."
Things were finally starting to look up though, thanks to the upcoming spring garden ramble.
"We're very excited about it and so grateful.... It's just a magnificent garden," Mrs Corby said.
Entry is $10 per person. Children under 12 are free. Morning and afternoon tea will be available for purchase - as will raffle tickets.
The 'Spring Garden Ramble' at 1 Squatter's Ridge is on Saturday, October 16, and Sunday, October 17, from 10am - 5pm.
