The Central Coast Edible Garden Trail celebrates the many ways gardeners on the Central Coast are creating food security, building personal and community resilience, regenerating soils and converting waste into precious resources – all while enjoying the health benefits of home grown produce and taking meaningful action towards reducing food miles and plastics use.
On the edible garden trail visitors can view a range of permaculture systems and practices including:
- Food forests
- Indigenous foods and cultural practices
- Small animal systems including deep litter, chook tractors and integrated food forests
- Water management including swales, rain gardens and ponds
- No dig raised beds and sheet mulching
- Keeping bees – Native and European
- Habitats for wildlife
Ticket holders will have access to around 25 private gardens and a variety of community, laneway and school gardens. Your ticket provides admission to all gardens over the trail weekend – Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November, between 09:30am and 4:00pm on each day. Please note, that some gardens will only be open for one day.
Ticket holders will be sent a map and program with garden profiles, addresses and opening days and times two weeks prior to the event.
Remember to bring your ticket with you on the trail to use for admission to the gardens.
Important Information for Ticket holders
The Central Coast Edible Garden Trail team and the garden owners have taken all reasonable precautions to make the gardens safe for visitors. However, despite all efforts there are possible inherent dangers in all gardens, including paths, steps, walls, borders and other garden features that may present hazards. Particularly as these are working gardens developed for produce not visitors.
We would ask that when climbing, descending or crossing part of the garden, you act only within the limits of your fitness and take particular care to prevent tripping, slipping, falling, striking or colliding with objects in the trail gardens.
Please always ask about stroller access as some gardens are not stroller friendly. Children must at all times be accompanied by and under supervision of an adult. We ask that you do not bring dogs or other animals to gardens on the trail.
Garden visitors must stay on the paths at all times and must not enter areas marked “out of bounds” or obviously private.
Beware, some gardens have bees.
Toilets will not be available at gardens. You can check the National Public Toilet Map for the nearest public toilets.
If, for any reason, the trail can’t go ahead on the scheduled dates, your ticket/s will be transferred to the new date or a refund will be given.
