Every year, in the picturesque Victoria Gardens, the City of Stonnington hosts a fabulous event called Spring into Gardening. Filled with loads of entertainment, gardening and local community businesses and groups this is a FREE and perfect family friendly event.
When: Sunday 13 October 2013, 11am – 3pm
Where: Victoria Gardens, High Street Prahran
On a gorgeous spring day this event is a really sweet way to spend a few hours outdoors with the family enjoying free entertainment – from potting plants to performances on the stage.
We went along last year and checked out local community groups (Immi met with the local Girl Guides unit and is now a year into her Girl Guide experience!), enjoyed yummy food, read some books (in the Library tent) as well as trying out all the activities. This years line up is looking equally impressive. And of course we went home with some free plants which went into our veggie patch. ♥
