Visit Kyneton Open Edible Gardens
Saturday 3rd September

Once again a selection of local edible gardeners are throwing open their garden gates to welcome visitors. It’s a chance for you to check out what they have been doing and what they’ve learned along the way.

You can learn about lots of gardening topics including: wicking beds, bird and insect attracting plants, native bee hotels, fresh local produce, organic gardening, vegetables, fruit, nuts and herbs, companion planting, free range chickens, composting, water saving, hugelkultur, water harvesting, soil improvement, seed saving, biochar and many aspects of permaculture.

Eleven very different edible gardens around Kyneton are opening their gates on Saturday 3 September 2016 as part of the Kyneton Daffodil andArts Festival. Some of you may have already seen the Festival program, but please note that several new gardens have been added since the program went to print and one garden has become unavailable. For a complete list check out the map and descriptions below or pick a copy up from your first garden for the day or at the Festival or Visitor Information centres.

The gardens will be open at various times with the first opening at 10 am and the last closing at 4 pm. The gardeners will be happy to share what they have learned from their gardening experiences.

If you’re an edible garden fan, we suggest you make the time to visit all the gardens we have lined up for you. There are some exciting new additions since the last open day, as well as a few favourites open again.

If you are visiting Kyneton for the Festival we suggest you squeeze at least one or two into your busy schedule.

Our local Kyneton edible gardeners look forward to making you feel welcome.
