Green thumbs will be keen to mark 18 to 20 October in their diaries for the popular Gardening Australia Live event being held in Sydney.
Featuring Costa Georgiadis and the case from ABC TV’s Gardening Australia, the three-day event will inform, inspire and entertain with advice and tips for living a more sustainable lifestyle.
Keeping guests entertained and informed will be a jam-packed program of live presentations on how to grow and maintain any garden, Pasture to Plate cooking demonstrations and interactive workshops, covering all the basics to getting your garden growing, including soil preparation, planting and maintenance.
A highlight of the event will be the Saturday Night Organic Food Festival, which will see the Gardening Australia presenters join high-profile chefs to celebrate sustainable produce by creating delicious sampling menus from locally grown food.
With something for the whole family, the interactive event will include an ABC Kids Precinct complete with guest appearances from ABC Kids TV characters, an animal petting farm, face painting and workshops perfect for getting little hands dirty.
Rounding out the event will be an extensive range of stalls with gardening supplies and tools, seedlings and plants, pots and décor as well as local and organic produce; industry experts from the largest associations and societies will be on hand to answer questions along with a plant-sitting service for purchases made at the show.
