Botanical Bazaar Blooms this Spring!

Botanical Bazaar Blooms this Spring!

The Gold Coast’s biggest Gardening Expo, the Botanical Bazaar is back by popular demand 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.

Costa Georgiadis, best known as a presenter on ABC’s Gardening Australia TV program, and Gardening Australia Magazine Chief Horticultural Editor Phil Dudman will sow the seed about community and organic gardening. In addition, expert horticulturist Claire Bickle and co-inventor of the revolutionary Flow Hive Stuart Anderson will share their knowledge to encourage native animals and bees to your backyard.

The event will be complemented by award winning botanical artist Julia-Rose’s parade of stunning live masterpieces, along with floral and basket weaving workshops.

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.

City of Gold Coast Greening Officer Saraya Robinson said the Bazaar will have something for everyone.

“If you’re a keen gardener or have an interest in plants, a visit to the Botanical Bazaar event is a must! It will be a fantastic event with loads to see and do.”

According to the Bazaar’s event organiser Stacey Panozzo it’s the absolutely one stop shop for everything botanical.

The Botanical Bazaar will be held at Country Paradise Parklands Nerang on Sunday, 3 September from 9am to 5pm with tickets from $5 to $15.

Avoid the queues and get your tickets online from www.botanicalbazaar.com.au
