PepperTree Place open garden event Sat 18th and Sun 19th (Coburg)

A first for this unique community greenspace, the Open Gardens Australia event will showcase the edible landscape of PepperTree Place on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th February, 10am – 4:30pm.

Take a closer look at ways to “grow your own” at home while exploring the unique story of a garden steeped in history. Fun and friendly guided tours for adults or kids throughout the day, garden fresh lunches and quality baked goods from the Cafe Cooperative social enterprise, and quality plants on sale at the PepperTree Community Nursery.

Garden tour info:

  • Sat 11am: People, Plants and Place with Steven Wells, Horticultural Therapist and Landscape Designer
  • Sat 10:30am: Bugs Alive (for Kids) with Lizzie Bickmore, Family Gardening specialist.
  • Sat and Sun: PepperTree Place; Past, Present and Future with Sustainable Garden expert Diana Cotter

This beautiful and productive urban landscape provides living examples of innovative, creative (and sometimes down-right-old-fashioned) ways of growing food organically. Each garden space and community initiative is managed with environmentally sustainable principles in mind and with the aim of being a practical learning tool for the individuals, families and community groups who access the space.
