What is Gardening on the Edge?
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 Maleny Showgrounds (Stanley River Road, Maleny).
There is 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.
The 2014 event will be a garden trail of country gardens open to the public and a garden market with specialist plant and produce stalls, camellia flower display, homemade refreshments and daily raffle prizes at Maleny Showgrounds.
