Ballarat Community Garden

Between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm on Sunday 3 March 2019 will be the 10th Annual Autumn Festival for the Ballarat Community Garden, corner of Queen Street and Dyte Parade, Ballarat East.

Despite the name change, the Festival will still have all your favourite stalls and activities, with a few extras thrown in!

Thinking of starting your own veggie patch? Want to see what to do with your home-grown produce? Need some easy and cheap ideas to help with the growing process? Or do you just want to come and be entertained?

Come to the Ballarat Community Garden Annual Autumn Festival, meet our gardeners and be inspired by their abundant garden beds!

There will be plenty of choice with pizzas, sausages and drinks, tea, coffee and cake. All this will be available while you sit and listen to a variety of live music played and sung by local artists. The Thursday Night Choir will start the day and the Ballarat City Brass Band will perform in the afternoon. There will be other music and surprise events throughout the garden.

A produce stall will be groaning with preserves and the odd vegetable. Choose from the many plants and flowers available. Enjoy craft products and plenty more. There will be a cake stall and activities for the children. There will be raffle prizes to be won and a chance to learn a craft or two!

We shall have our own John Ditchburn, the 'Urban Food Gardener', to educate us on growing food in our Ballarat climate. Angela Enbom will show you how she keeps bees and some local spinners will show you their craft.

Or you can just wander through the garden. Take a ‘discovery tour’ and see what you find.

What more could you want? Well, come on down and just enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

Look forward to seeing you there between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm!
