Running from 17 – 20 August 2017, the 4-day garden festival will take inspiration from the South West landscape to spread the message to look after the planet, and enjoy our gardens as ‘living sanctuaries’.

Festival favourite Josh Whiteland will show us just how delicious food can be using traditional bush ingredients. Guy Jeffreys, head chef at Millbrook Winery will explain why he is so passionate about South West produce, and the importance to know where our food comes from. Up and coming chef Alysha Sladden will give insight as to why she’s got the reputation for being one of the new generation, providing her style of fine dining.
