The Forbes Riverside Community Garden will be hosting its Open Day this Saturday. The Open Day is an opportunity to showcase the Community Garden and to announce the winners of two competitions that they have been running.
The two competition categories to be judged are Best Scarecrow and Best Individual Vegetable Garden Bed.
Approximately 30 scarecrows have been entered into the competition. The judging will be done by popular vote and will take place at the Community Garden in Reymond Street (site of the old Forestry Nursery) between 9am and 1pm.
There are around 20 entries in the Best Individual Vegetable Garden Bed and these will be judged by Darren Kopp.
The presentation of awards will take place between 11.30am and 12.30pm. Prizes for the competition winners have been generously donated by local businesses.
Along with the competitions there will be plant sales, tours of the garden and a sausage sizzle. Entry is free. Sausage sandwiches are $2.00 and cold drinks are $1.00.
Enquiries regarding donating towards the Forbes Riverside Community Garden (a not for profit organisation) can be directed to Anne Hodges on the day.
