Costa Georgiadis

Garden Guru Costa Georgiadis, well known from TV and Radio will be the main presenter at the Yandina Community Gardens Open Day.

The fundraising day for the Gardens hosts a series of engaging and edutaining talks and workshops for everyone from the emerging verandah or small block backyard gardener to the seasoned grower on an acreage and everyone in

Costaʼs two talks and garden ramble are the highlight of the day not only due to his engaging, interactive, hugely educational and fun presenting style. No matter how many times you have seen him, youʼre always bound to learn something new.

Costaʼs infectious way gets everyone interested and involved, so make sure you bring the family along.

Other talks will cover a great variety of topics: Get an insight into which other plants are edible, learn about composting and fruit trees and how Community Gardens can contribute to peopleʼs mental health.

Many of the edible or otherwise incredibly useful or versatile plants are available for purchase from the gardens at the open day.

Homemade scrumptious food, featuring some fresh ingredients from the gardens, freshly baked cake and coffee will be available for purchase on the day.
