The upcoming Queensland Garden Expo is the place to be for novice gardeners, experienced green thumbs and anyone interested in growing their own produce.
Held at the Nambour Showgrounds from July 8-10, this three-day expo is Queensland’s premier gardening event, where some of Australia’s leading experts take part in lectures, workshops and demonstrations.
If you are looking to cultivate a sustainable garden and find out more about permaculture or organic practices, the Giant Organic Kitchen is a great place to visit and hear from those in the know.
But for us food lovers, the best spot is the Cook’s Garden Stage, located on the eastern side of the Oval, opposite the Poinciana Stage.
You will hear great tips on growing your own produce and turning it into scrumptious meals, plus tons of information about using plant-based remedies for your garden, home and body!
Many of us have taken to growing our own fruit and veg over the past couple of years, so if you are bored of your usual recipes, this is the place to be. Plus, learn how to make the most of your herbs – last year Expo speaker Kevin Redd taught a simple mouth-watering method to making a delicious pesto!
Martin Duncan, aka Sunshine Coast Foodie, Sconetime man, and Basset Barks Brand Ambassador, is the host with the most at this popular spot for 2022.
“I’m excited, as there are 380 stall holders, fabulous guest speakers and an amazing selection of plants!” Martin said.
“I love sharing recipes and using produce from the region to make delicious meals,” Martin continued, “And there will be plenty of guest speakers bringing their own ideas and inspiration to visitors at the expo. Hopefully everyone will leave with great plans for their kitchens and stomachs!”
