The latest addition to the Southern Highlands Botanic Gardens is on track-tor to become a reality.
But it is now reliant on community donations to get the project across the line.
Federal MP for Whitlam Stephen Jones recently announced a $20,000 grant for the construction of a new tractor shed at the gardens on the corner of Kangaloon and Old South Road, Bowral.
Meanwhile, an anonymous benefactor has also promised to make a dollar for dollar donation up to $50,000 towards the shed and additional provisions.
Needless to say garden volunteers are keen to attract donations from other generous supporters.
SHBG chair Charlotte Webb said the tractor shed would cost about $40,000 to construct.
She said additional funds raised would go towards preparation of the area around the shed, including fencing, electricity and water.
The $20,000 Federal Government grant was made through the Stronger Communities Grant Round 3.
The gardens have become a community project close to the heart of Mr Jones who has been following there development for more than a decade.
Mr Jones described working on botanic gardens as a great way to make a voluntary contribution.
"This is one of the most generous ways you can volunteer," he said.
"Mostly you are volunteering on things that won't be at their best for 20 to 40 years down the track.
"This is for our grandkids and their grandkids.
"I love the effort and time put into botanic gardens. They are an iconic gift to the future."
In addition to the tractor shed plans the SHBG volunteers have several other projects in the pipeline.
Ms Webb said work was currently underway on a northern entrance off Alice Avenue, Bowral, featuring dry stone walls and etchings of native plants in slate by artist Ian Marr.
"A series of benches will also be installed along the bike track in the eastern precinct where the native garden is being developed," she said.
"Other work underway is the completion of the gravel paths within the garden and the commencement of planting the 'Spring' garden.
"This project has been delayed due to the wet weather. We have recently been awarded a grant by Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal to construct a new picnic shelter in the spring garden."
