General Info

Getting the most out of each garden you visit: Each gardener will do a brief talk about their garden at 15 minutes past the hour, every hour (i.e 9.15am, 10.15am, 11.15am and 12.15pm). Listen for the “coo-eee” before each talk starts. If you time your day, you can get around to all 4 gardens and hear each gardener’s talk. Gardeners and their key volunteers will wear high vis to identify themselves. Gardeners are generously sharing their space, so please show your gratitude, stick to paths and tread respectfully!

Tickets & Volunteers: Please buy your tickets online at www.ediblegardensfestival.au – tickets aren’t available for purchase at the open gardens. Show your ticket (printed or on your phone) to volunteers at each garden upon arrival. Volunteers are also there to provide info and assist where possible!

Children & Pets: Kids 16 and under are free but do need an entry ticket which can be reserved when purchasing adult tickets (this helps us keep track of overall numbers). Please ensure kids are supervised and well behaved. Sorry, no dogs or other pets allowed at open gardens.

Toilets & Parking: Toilets are not available for use at open gardens. Please use nearby public toilets. Please park respectfully and follow the parking instructions on the program for each garden and the instructions of parking attendants at some gardens.

Food and drinks: The Fair Harvest Permaculture café will be open over the weekend for lunch, beverages and cake. There will also be food and drinks available at some gardens (see open gardens pages for details). It might look delicious but please don’t pick or eat any produce from gardens.

Accommodation: If you’re coming from out of town and need accommodation, Fair Harvest Permaculture is the official campground for the festival (book at www.fairharvest.com.au). The Margaret River Region visitor centre can also assist with accommodation bookings (www.margaretriver.com.au).

Weather: Fingers crossed for great weather but the event will still go ahead in wet weather. Don’t forget to bring: Protection for sunny or inclement weather, shoes, water bottle, snacks, camera, pen and notepad.

Getting around: Sustainability is a big goal for this event, so please car pool, ride your bike where possible, or visit the festival’s Facebook and Instagram pages to arrange ride sharing. Gardens have been grouped together by location to minimise commuting.

Your safety + wheelchair access: Gardens are working spaces so be aware of hazards like steps, ponds etc. Some gardens are wheelchair friendly. See the notes on each garden.
