Australians have worn a sprig of rosemary - the “remembrance herb” - on their lapels for decades as a sign of remembrance and respect for our fallen and wounded diggers.
Cathy and David Harris grow an abundance of rosemary on their farm to donate to Legacy Australia on Anzac Day. As pictured, the generous people of the Megalong Valley, along with the Harris family, come together each year to pick the rosemary in preparation for Anzac Day. A great team effort for a great cause!
Most of this rosemary is donated to Legacy Australia, who then break it up into small sprigs for their volunteers to sell for a gold coin at various ceremonies around Sydney. The remaining rosemary, if any, we bunch and sell in our shops and donate those proceeds to Legacy.
This weekend, you can show your support for our veterans and their families by picking up a sprig in exchange for a gold coin donation or a bunch of fresh rosemary for $10, at your local Harris Farm and online.
