Thanks for booking your ticket for a day of Well-being, through Gardening!

Things to remember/do/bring:

Tickets: Bring your ticket with you to Bushland Park where you will be given a programme with the day's events - times and locations of guest speaker's talks, and addresses of the gardens you can visit around the town. If you have a smart phone, you may wish to leave your ticket on there and show the ticketing staff when you arrive.

COVID19: This is a COVID safe event and as such, we will be subject to the current restrictions. It is a condition of entry to our festival that you adhere to all restrictions/directions in order for this event to take place. If you are unwell, have been in a COVID hotspot or have COVID symptoms, please do not attend. In this instance, please contact the Lobethal Community Association for a refund at lobethal.community.association@gmail.com. Alternatively, you may wish to donate your entrance fee to the Festival which will be gratefully accepted.

Refreshments and shopping: We would love it if you could visit one or more of the fantastic local businesses in Lobethal for food, beverages, and a bit of shopping throughout the day. The options are endless in our wonderful little town and we know there'll be something for everyone!

Toilets: Public toilets are located at the end of the main street, in the Woolen Mill complex and at the rear of Centennial Hall. Please do not ask gardeners for permission to use toilets in the private homes.

What to wear: Keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly. You will definitely need a hat, sunscreen and comfortable, enclosed shoes suitable for walking on uneven ground.

Supervision of children: Please ensure that you supervise your children at all times. Our gardeners and volunteers are not responsible for this. Garden owners have been generous in opening their beautiful green spaces to visitors. Please respect them by enjoying their gardens and leaving them as you found them - ensure that your children do the same. Please, also, don't take cuttings from gardens. Thankyou.

Accessibility: While we have done our best to ensure that this event is inclusive, please be aware that unfortunately, some private gardens (or parts of gardens) may be inaccessible to some. Your programme (given to you when you present your ticket on the day) will have details of addresses of gardens, the style of garden, and the terrain within those gardens. Please read this carefully and choose the gardens which suit your accessibility requirements, needs and interests. Please, also, take note of signage within each garden, when making your way through. While every effort has been made to minimize risk, these are private gardens and are opened with the understanding that you will heed any warnings made to you by owners and organisers.

Parking: Parking will be available at Bushland Park and at the Hughes Construction carpark directly opposite. Please follow directions from volunteers on the day and adhere to speed restrictions. You will need to obey all speed limits around the town when driving to private gardens. Please be thoughtful to residents and respectfully consider them when parking your car.

Walking: For those visitors who love to walk, you may wish to park your car and walk between gardens. What a great way to boost your well-being! Please be aware that while we are a small town, there may be several kilometres between some locations. Remember your walking shoes and some water.

Opening and closing times: Private gardens will be open between 10am and 3pm. Please exit these gardens promptly at 3pm, showing respect to our garden owners. You can then make your way to Centennial Hall (Main street) for our closing session/finale, starting at 3.30pm, with guest speaker, Sophie Thomson.

Pets: With the exception of service dogs, please leave your pets at home.

In the event that our event has to be cancelled/changed due to restrictions concerning extreme weather or COVID related matters, we will inform you of this via email and on the Lobethal Community Association Facebook page. Please stay tuned for any of these updates.

Most importantly, have fun, enjoy chatting with our gardeners, learn lots, and be well.
