What is? – When is?

Gardening on the Edge

 Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June, 2019 – 9am until 4pm

           Enjoy a visit to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and be inspired by our Delightful Gardens and Garden Market

Gardening on the Edge is a Garden Trail and Garden Market providing an opportunity for locals and visitors to the area to see a number of beautiful gardens and to attend the Garden Market at the Maleny Showgrounds (Stanley River Road, Maleny). Something for the serious gardener and those interested in the beauty of nature.

Generous garden owners make their properties available for the event and manage the influx of visitors, along with the help of the Maleny Garden Club Member Volunteers. It is a substantial commitment on the part of the garden owners and the many volunteers to stage the event, which provides a great opportunity to learn more about gardening and the Hinterland Region.

The Event is the main fundraiser for the Maleny Garden Club Inc. Held annually since 2005, the Club has raised in excess of $130,000 which has been donated to local organisations such as the Maleny Hospital Auxiliary, Blackall Range Care, Rural Fire Brigade, Men’s Shed, SES and State & High School Chaplaincies.

Gardening on the Edge draws many people to the area. Last year over 1,000 people visited the Garden Trail and Garden Market and contributed to the local Business Community and Tourism on the Range.

The 2019 event will be a garden trail of six country gardens open to the public and a garden market with specialist plant and produce stalls, camellia flower display, homemade refreshments and a raffle to support the Maleny Hospital Auxiliary.

Councillor Jenny McKay our Patron and the Sunshine Coast Council are very supportive of “Gardening on The Edge” for which the Maleny Garden Club is very grateful
