Television gardening stars, Costa Georgiadis and Jerry Coleby-Williams of ABC TV, will be two of the top presenters at the Living Earth Festival at the Mullumbimby Community Gardens on Sunday (September 1), 10am–9.30pm.
Costa and Jerry have generously donated their time and expertise to help foster the gardening passions of our community. They’ll both be involved in talks and heaps of hands-in-the-dirt activities with adults and kids all day.
Costa hosted SBS TV’s Costa’s Garden Odyssey, and currently hosts ABC TV’s Gardening Australia. The self-titled ‘garden gnome, compost king, half man, half beard’, believes in embracing and celebrating Mother Nature’s cycles, nurturing her balance, beauty and bounty organically.
London-born Jerry is known internationally as a plant curator, conservationist and sustainable horticulturalist. He’s the horticulture editor of Organic Gardening, and author of Gardening Australia – Flora, the gardener’s bible.
The festival kicks off with the Living Earth Parade, from 10am at the Council Chambers, all the way to the Community Gardens.
All proceeds of the Living Earth Festival go towards building the Mullumbimby Community Gardens’ educational centre on the site.
The festival runs from 10am to 10pm and includes presentations from Costas and Gerry, workshops and demos, a feast of organic food and danceable music into the night.
Entry by gold coin donation.
