What is the Gardening on the Edge?
Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 June, 2013
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 at the one time and to attend the Garden Market at the Indoor Activity Centre at Maleny High School. Something for the serious gardener and those just interested in the beauty of nature.
Generous garden owners make their properties available for the program and they manage the influx of visitors. It is a substantial commitment on the part of the garden owners and the many volunteers needed to stage the event. The event provides a great opportunity to learn more about gardening and the region in general.
The event is the main fundraiser for the Maleny Garden Club. It has been held each year since 2005
and has raised in excess of $50,000. The money raised has been distributed to local community organisations.
Gardening on the Edge draws many people to the area. In 2010, some 1,700 people visited gardens and contributed to business activity on the Range.
