Update - My 2017 open weekend was a huge success with people coming from hundreds of Km away. The weather was kind and visitors seemed to go away happy with all the information they obtained. Thank you everyone who came, and those who helped.
Next open weekend will be the last weekend in Feb 2018 when harvesting of many crops will be underway.

2108 Open Day

CANCELLED - sorry but the current heatwave has destroyed most of my crops so I have had to cancel

Feb 25  2018  -  9.30am to 4.00pm

Come and see my little seed farm, what I am growing and my set up. I will only be showing one of my blocks as I have new varieties I am breeding or growing out in the other blocks for other people and seed companies, and this is to protect their interests. You are welcome to arrive at any time as it is pretty informal. I will have seed for sale in packets.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING SO I KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE TO EXPECT. I only have a dozen chairs so you might like to bring your own folding chairs to sit on.

On Saturday the 24th Feb Due to lack of interest the industry day on the 24th will not go ahead so we will just have the one day.

Sunday 25th Feb 2018 - open to the general public. FREE to come  There will be a coffee van (with cold drinks too), and a food van present. Lucky door prize, seeds and some plants for sale. Seed swap.

10.00 am: walk through, but also information leaflets for anyone who wants to walk through themselves. 

SEED SWAP - there will be a seed swap table on Sunday. You can bring seeds that you have grown, or that you have lying around (Not out of date please) and leave them on the table, take any other packets that you are interested in. Please label you packets with the correct name and if the seed may not be a pure variety then note that also. Potted plants, especially edible plants, welcome too for swapping.

PLACE: 157 Bahgalla Rd. Next to the DPI on the edge of Casterton (or call into 45 Russell St for directions.) You are welcome to email me for directions.

By attending this open day you understand that Garden Larder is a working farm and you may be exposed to hazards such as, but lot limited to: trip hazards, insect stings, food allergens. Attending persons take these risks upon themselves. 


  • Be aware that there will be trip hazards. You will be walking over uneven ground. 
  • No small children please, unless they can be carried. Children have a hard time distinguishing bed boundries. This is not a hard rule so if you are careful and will hold your childs hand that should be ok. I have many rare and valuable plants in the beds that I can't have stepped on.
  • Nibbling of some plants is allowed but be aware that different people have different reactions to foods, especially if you have never eaten them before.   
  • Being February, it may be hot, please bring a brimmed hat
