These finished designer cubby houses will then be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to Kids Under Cover, which is a charity for youth homelessness and also provides mentors and scholarships to disadvantaged kids. Check out these amazing structures at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show from March 16-20, where you can vote for one to be awarded the People’s Choice Award.
