Castlemaine & District Festival of Gardens
29 October to 6 November 2016
What a great Festival! Thank you to everyone who came. And thank you to all our great exhibitors. It's a lot of work and the gardens looked fabulous after all the rain — and hours of weeding.
This was our Silver Jubilee year. As always there was variety of gardens, from grand and historical gardens to small cottage plots and community gardens, including, for the first time, a school garden at Winters Flat Primary School.
Our district has endured harsh climatic conditions over the past two years, and, unfortunately, some previous exhibitors had to withdraw. But over the winter the region enjoyed good rainfall which contributed to our gardens being at their best this spring.
This year our sponsors included ASQ/Skydancers and Castlemaine Property Group. Mount Alexander Shire Council provided funds through their Community Grants Scheme. These contributions are much appreciated.
A big thank you to our generous sponsors:
