The Gold Coast’s biggest Gardening Expo, the Botanical Bazaar, is back by popular demand in 2017 and will again be supported by Tropical Fruit World.
On Sunday 3 September, the Botanical Bazaar will be blooming in its new 13-hectare home at the Country Paradise Parklands in Nerang. With celebrity gardens, more than 80 green inspired exhibitors, interactive workshops and kid’s activities, the Bazaar is expected to be a drawcard for thousands of nature lovers.
There will be an array of plants from orchids to native and succulents, garden materials and supplies, aquaponics, hydroponics and vertical gardens, even exquisite botanical homewares for sale.
Visitors will be able to learn everything they need to know about composting, buzzing bees, growing their own food, DIY self-watering garden beds and how to make their own cheese.
Kids can get crafty at the Mr Fothergill’s Kids Hub, hosted by local environmental educators, Natura Education. They can interact with baby farm animals, see a cow milking demonstration, be surrounded by beautiful butterflies, learn about snake safety, plus walk through the large community gardens.
A delicious variety of food offerings will be available, along with locally grown organic coffee and brewers bar for the over 18’s. All complemented by live and local tunes by Mattie Barker and Mick McHugh.
