A fun family day for all gardening fans, young and old
Whether you want to get your children into gardening or you just want to help teach the kids about sustainable living, Open Gardens West Coast is hosting a free event for Perth's green thumb families.
The Open Gardens Family Fun Day in the Garden will take place on Sunday, 7 April from 10am to 2pm at Earthwise Community in Subiaco.
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.
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.
