Guided garden tours

  • discover different ways you can grow healthy food in your own home—whether you live on acreage, a small suburban block, or an apartment with a tiny balcony—and find out how you can do it all on a shoestring budget!

Harvest Swap

From 10 am to 12 noon, Leonie Orton from Harvest Swap—Sunshine Coast will be running a special Harvest Swap for our Festival. Bring along your excess homegrown produce (fruit, veggies, herbs, seedlings, eggs, honey, worm juice, etc) and homemade goods (preserves, baked goods, handmade items, etc); place them on the table and you will be able to take home a similar quantity of produce from other contributors.

Scarecrow Competition

Local schools have been invited to submit entries for our scarecrow competition to be judged at the Festival. The winning school will receive a visit from the Living Classroom Project team, which will include a cooking and garden demonstration, fun activities and a brief consultation, if the school wishes – thank you Living Classroom team!
