Second Spring Festival ready to bloom

A beautiful community garden in Bowral will be opening to the public next month.

The Four Seasons Community Garden is hosting its second annual Spring Festival on Sunday, October 27 from 9am to 2pm, featuring food, fun and festivities for families and aspiring green thumbs.

There will be a series short garden talks;

  • 10am Edible Weeds Jo Dodd
  • 11am Honey Bees Sylvia Cornwell
  • 12pm Moonacres Organic Farm Phil Lavers
  • 1pm Worm Farms Elizabeth Guest

There will be stalls offering plenty of fresh and preserved food available. Plants, produce, garden books, tools and garden bric-a-bric can also be purchased.

Morning tea and lunch will be on offer. There will also be a Kid's Corner, with plenty of fun things for the little ones to do.

The Four Seasons Community Garden was started in 2013 in collaboration with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) with a mission to "support the broader community with information about good health, growing nutritious food and providing garden produce for people in need, thus supporting existing welfare activities in the Southern Highlands."

The festival is a one-day event on site at the community garden: 182 Bowral Street, Bowral (entrance from McDonald Street).
