Carcoar Capers | Down To Earth Garden Expo and Plant Fair

The Down to Earth Garden Expo and Plant Fair is back again in 2017 and is shaping up to be one of the biggest events of its kind in the central west.

Once again the expo will highlight ecology and sustainability along with the relaxation and pleasure to be derived from gardening.

There will be workshops and pop up talks from garden gurus plus the opportunity to connect with other enthusiasts.

Gardeners will also have the exclusive opportunity to purchase rare and unusual plants direct from the growers, including perennials, heirloom fruit and vegetables, roses, maples, irises and so much more.

In addition the event will showcase Australian sculpture in the beautiful rural setting of the Carcoar Showground.

Enter the competition for garden art created from recycled materials.

Artwork must be comprised of 70 per cent or more recycled/recyclable/reused materials and all entries must be on site at the Carcoar Showground by 8am on the Sunday.

The judging will be based on creative expression and the innovative use of recycled material.

For more details email: chmuseum@hotmail.com.

Entry forms will soon be available from http://www.carcoarvillage.com/down-to-earth-gardening-expo-plant-fair. 

There will be plenty of fun for the kids along with good food and coffee.

The Down to Earth Garden Expo and Plant Fair at the Carcoar Show Ground on Sunday April 23 will be the place to be.

Shalom Long Lunch Returns

Last Sunday 'Shalom' House of Prayer at Carcoar hosted the first of their Long Lunches for the year. Guest speaker was Jake Hansen, better known as The Orange Snake Catcher.

Jake gave a very interesting talk about snakes and dispelled a number of myths surrounding this much maligned creature.

Various snakes (live) in boxes were passed around for a look including a python which guests were invited to touch and which promptly wound itself around fingers and arms.

The talk and slideshow was followed by a delicious three course meal. Well done to all those who organised the event and helped out in the kitchen.
