Now in its 35th year, the Mid-Mountains Garden Festival showcases the beauty and diversity of local gardens, and the creativity of gardeners in the mid-Blue Mountains.
The annual Spring festival raises much-needed funds for Hazelbrook Public School. The Blue Mountains garden festival also brings the school, broader community and like-minded gardening enthusiasts together.
The mid-Blue Mountains area is located just over an hour’s drive west of Sydney.
Money raised through the Garden Festival has funded school projects including: new school playground equipment, multipurpose sports courts, and a “Sharing Knowledge” circle and garden, which plays an important role in connecting the school community to our indigenous history.
The P&C is now hoping to raise money to install block-out blinds and air conditioners in classrooms.
Classrooms are currently heated in winter by old unflued gas heaters. Staff, students and parents hope to get rid of these for good. Block-out blinds are needed to protect the rooms from the scorching summer sun.
The Hazelbrook Public School P&C and Garden Festival committee are incredibly grateful to the wonderful and dedicated garden owners who open their beautiful gardens to the public.
We value the support of all our garden visitors. We look forward to meeting new and long-term visitors to some fabulous mountains gardens this year!
