The Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden hosts its annual spring festival on Sunday 25 August with art, plant sales and live music just some of the highlights.
Other attractions at this year’s Festival include wildflower displays, food and drink stalls, a free trackless train, pond dip netting, children’s craft workshops and an Australian wildlife display.
To celebrate the coming of spring, a free flower crown making workshop has been added to the list of activities at the Festival.
The environmentally-themed Sculpture Walk competition will also be launched at the Festival with a total of $5000 in cash prizes for winning artworks, partly funded by the Ku-ring-gai Environmental Levy.
Artists and sculptors have been asked to demonstrate the use of natural or recycled materials in their sculptures, which should be sympathetic to the Garden’s bushland environment. A special Children’s Category has been included this year.
The sculpture walk has attracted a record 44 entries and for the first time will be in place for one month after the Festival concludes.
