Catch ‘Tondoon Talks’ and win a composting kit!

Gladstone Regional Council’s Senior Conservation Officer, Rebecca Hendry, has helped put together these composting and gardening accessories as a prize for Ecofest 2018.

Are you a keen gardener who loves to produce nutritious compost or is it something you keep putting off, thinking ‘I’ll get to it one day’.

Either way, if you’re at Ecofest 2018 on Sunday, June 3, you can win some generous prizes to make your composting and gardening routines so much easier.

Council’s team at the Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens have put together two fantastic kits as competition prizes.

They’re made up of a range of composting equipment and gardening accessories for some lucky Ecofest visitors to take home with them.

And here’s how you can be in the running….

During the Main Tent stage program, there will be three different ‘Tondoon Talks’ sessions for people to attend.

The day kicks off at 9.30am with Gardens’ curator, Brent Braddick, talking about ‘Gardening with Port Curtis Plants’. Then at 10.40am, there will be a session discussing ‘Turfing for Tomorrow’ and how to grow turf sustainably in Gladstone.

At 11.50am, the final talk will be about Bonsai to be presented by Gardens’ Manager, Barry Meiring, and the Bonsai Friends of Tondoon. The Bonsai workshops being held at the Gardens are becoming increasingly popular and well attended.

If you attend the first two sessions on Port Curtis plants and turf, you’ll be able to answer a series of questions based on the information delivered. The first two entries with the correct answers will each win a kit valued at over $320.

The prize includes a Bokashi compost bin, an Ensopet composting kit, a Bobble-T sprinkler and a worm kit, among other things.

So get along to Central Queensland’s biggest environmental event and try your luck!
