After the great success of our first event in March it is now time to throw our garden gates open again and welcome all edible gardening fans. It’s a chance for you to check out what local edible gardeners have been doing and what they’ve learned along the way.
You can learn about lots of gardening topics including: worm farms, hugelkultur, earthworks, water harvesting, soil testing and improvement, companion planting, wicking beds, native bee hotels, integrating flowers and art work, seed saving, biochar and many aspects of permaculture.
Nine very different edible gardens around Kyneton are opening their gates on Saturday 6th September and this time it’s part of the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival. Some of you may have already seen the Festival program, but please note that three new gardens have been added since the program went to print so check out the map and descriptions published below to help plan your day.
The gardens will be open at various times with the first opening at 9 am and the last closing at 4 pm. The gardeners will be happy to share what they have learned from their gardening experiences, and this time some are having talks at specific times.
If you’re an edible garden fan, we suggest you make the time to visit all nine gardens we have lined up for you. There are some exciting new additions since the last open day, as well as a few favourites open again.
If you are visiting Kyneton for the Festival we suggest you squeeze at least one or two into your busy schedule.
Our local Kyneton edible gardeners look forward to making you feel welcome.
