Some of Australia’s leading gardening and food identities will be appearing at the inaugural Horticultural & Gardening Festival at the Melbourne Showgrounds from 9th to 11th October 2015.
Visitors will have opportunity to learn directly from gardening super stars, including Peter Cundall, and Costa Georgiadis. A number of GardenDrum regulars will also be there, including Angus Stewart and Stephen Ryan, Attila Kapitany and Ian Barker.
Foodies can meet with former MasterChef winner, Emma Dean, indigenous chef, Mark Olive and paddock to plate passionista Louise FitzRoy.
The Horticultural & Gardening Festival is the only big spring event to be held in Melbourne in 2015, with a focus not only on gardening and sustainability, but also on gourmet cooking and growing edible plants. It will be packed with events and displays that show visitors what and how to grow for their kitchens, how to be more self-sustaining, or simply how to beautify their home garden.
It’s the perfect event to attend if you want to know more about what to grow and how to cook it, or would you simply like some great ideas to take your garden to the next level.
And there are activities for the whole family. Children and parents both will be delighted by the dirtgirl Activity Centre, where kids will be able to garden and meet their gardening heroine.
There will be opportunities to buy plants and tools, gifts or edible produce, as well as attend specialty presentations. There will also be creative display gardens where you can meet the designers. Plant Q&A and free design consultations will be available.
The Horticultural & Gardening Festival is all about putting together people with amazing knowledge and passion for gardening and food with those who want to experience the joy of growing anything, from edibles to ornamentals. There’ll be opportunities to learn from the very best, have fun and walk away truly inspired.
