What’s Cooking in the Gardens?
What’s Cooking in the Gardens? is a celebration of food, lifestyle and sustainability. Festival-goers will enjoy vibrant displays and demonstrations as this normally secluded haven – Redcliffe Botanic Gardens – transforms into a world of ‘green’ fun. Gardening and cooking gurus galore will be on hand to share their collective years of wisdom on all things eco-botanical. There will be wonderful interactive workshops for all ages, demonstrations and displays and so much more, or simply wander through the paths of market stalls, filled with fresh, local produce, delicious treats and handmade goodies.
What’s Cooking in the Gardens? is the festival to unleash your inner ‘foodie’ and learn more about how to make your life more sustainable.
