Garden to Table will be the official seller of organic vegetables and herbs at the inaugural Plant Fair to be held at Highwic House on April 20th. The proceeds will go towards the work of the Garden to Table Trust.
The seedlings will come from our partner Oakdale Oragnics and there will also be a selection of window sill herb pots for people to have at hand in their kitchens.
About the Event
New Zealand Historic Places Trust property Highwic in Newmarket, Auckland is to host an exciting new style of horticultural event within its grounds. This inaugural event brings together a selected group of small specialty growers and groups who will showcase all manner of special treasures - plants, bulbs, shrubs, trees, vegetables and flowers - all of real interest to keen gardeners and passionate plant collectors.
Plants for sale will all be suitable for growing in the Auckland climate and would-be purchasers will have a chance to speak first hand with a group of incredibly knowledgeable specialty growers. There will also be book signings, a great pop-up café for those seeking refreshment, a plant crèche and ample opportunity to view the beautiful gardens at Highwic while the fair runs from 8:30am - 3:30pm, for one day only.
Entrance to the Plant Fair will cost $10.00 per adult, children are free, and this also gives entry to Highwic, with all monies going directly to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. This magnificent historic house celebrates its 150 anniversary this year.
