Open Gardens West Coast welcomes parents, carers and children of all ages with an interest in gardening, nature, sustainability and well-being to come along and learn.

This is an opportunity for families to be inspired by informative talks by celebrity gardener and ABC presenter Sophie Thomson, who will be joined by Earthwise Community's local sustainable gardener, Peg Davies.

Have your most pressing questions at the ready for these garden gurus, who will be on hand to help you get the best out of your flora.

Just some of the highlights of the event include a walk and tour around the unique Earthwise garden to see the upcycled art and sculptures and to visit the productive garden plots.

You can also learn about Boorna Waanginy Seeds of Change program, visit the market stalls or have a picnic under the shaded trees.

There will be plenty of activities on the day, including mosaics, creating planter pots and bee hotels, plus morning and afternoon teas and a sausage sizzle.

Visitors can take away a free Open Gardens West Coast gift bag filled with goodies and information from the event partners (numbers are limited.)

Who are Open Gardens West Coast?

Open Gardens West Coast is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers who open up private gardens around Perth to the public.

The organisation helps to showcase and support the work of Western Australia's talented gardeners and designers through a program of open gardens, workshops and various other events.

The Open Gardens West Coast team will support the garden owner in planning an event and welcoming gardeners and non-gardeners alike in exploring these unique spots of Perth.

If you haven't visited the Earthwise Community before, look for the little pink building at 315 Bagot Road in Subiaco.
