Please come to the Home Grown Garden Tour and BYO Picnic Soiree

Climate and health seem to combine in the garden, being outdoors, hands in soil, healing for people, healing for place. As the project developed we increasingly realised the centrality of this kind of practical tending of a garden as one of the key actions that brings together climate and health. In building community and building skills around this idea, we’re building resiliency in a time of climate change. Finishing with this tour symbolises this significance and gives us a chance to gather in both of Armidale’s community gardens – the Aboriginal Community Garden and the Armidale Community Garden behind NERAM.

After Black Gully Festival fell through twice, we’re finishing the Armidale Climate and Health Project with a partnership with Armidale Aboriginal Community Garden, Armidale Community Garden and Sustainable Living Armidale on the Home Grown Garden Tour.

Here’s how it works….

Buy tickets HERE and receive a map of all the gardens. The weekend begins with a Welcome to Country at the Armidale Aboriginal Community Garden on Saturday 26th February at 9.30am. Then, start your ‘choose your own adventure’ garden tour by visiting the 8 gardens across morning (10 – 12.30pm) and afternoon (1.30 – 4pm) sessions over both Saturday and Sunday.

Once you purchase your ticket here you will be sent an email confirmation with a link to download your tour booklet (map and schedule). NB you can checkout as a guest and ‘Pay by Card’ in PayPal if you don’t have a PayPal account.

AND join us for a ‘bring-your-own’ picnic to celebrate the 10th Birthday of the Home Grown Garden Tour at the Armidale Community Garden on Saturday 26th 4 – 7pm (live music from 5pm; event weather permitting). Tickets available from EVENTBRITE
