The Busselton Community Garden will host it’s annual festival next weekend.

Festival co-ordinator Jill Townsend said the event would incorporate a range of stalls and workshops as well as a scarecrow-making competition and workshops run by Geocatch and Busselton Water.

The Forever Project’s Tim Parker will host a workshop on the principles of sustainable gardening, healthy soil preparation and how to landscape a garden verge.

Mrs Townsend said the garden’s first official festival last year was a great success. “We were overwhelmed by the amount of people that turned out,” she said.

“We weren’t expecting that many and had some issues with parking but this year we will have someone co-ordinating parking.”
