It’s springtime on the Mornington Peninsula, and Mount Eliza is celebrating with a garden festival on November 10 from 9am until 4pm. This inaugural event honouring all things plants and soil, whether in residential or communal gardens or along the coast, gets down to the nitty gritty of gardening for pleasure and production.
Hosted at the Mt Eliza Community Centre and presented by the Mt Eliza Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Mt Eliza Neighbourhood House, the garden festival will bring an array of experts together to answer most of your tricky questions on how your garden grows. The Bonsai Society, landscape gardeners, plant specialists, including native plant experts and bee keepers will be on hand to discuss and suggest, while garden sculptures, lawn maintenance equipment, gardening services, plants and outdoor lighting will be on show. There’ll also be three great walks taking place throughout the day, including saunters through the Toorak College grounds, the historical Ranelagh Estate and the regenerated coastal planting area along the foreshore at the bottom of Williams Rd.
A new project, Mt Eliza Neighbourhood House community garden, will also be launched in conjunction with the festival on the day.
Get along to this great new community event to get your garden thriving and meet and greet like-minded people. A full program will be available soon. A green thumbs up to that!
