Get your wheelbarrow ready for the spring ABC Gardeners’ Market
The ABC Gardeners’ Market returns to ABC Adelaide on Saturday 13th October supporting St John Ambulance.
From summer-flowering perennials, annual and biennial plants, the evergreen ABC Gardeners’ Market has bargains galore that will get you buzzing in the outdoors.
The popular weekend family event boasts affordable international food stalls and free family entertainment. Children and adults alike will be amused by the ABC photo booth, Lolly Jar Circus, St John fake wounds make up artistry and the jazzy toe-tapping St John 20-piece brass band.
ABC Radio Adelaide’s Weekend presenter Deb Tribe will broadcast Talkback Gardening live with gardening expert Jon Lamb from 8.30am, followed by popular on-air segments About the House with builder Rose Squire and the Saturday Quiz.
For the first time, sports fans can watch Saturday Grandstanding with Jules Schiller live on stage at 11am, followed by a special Talkback Gardening Extra with Sophie Thomson from Gardening Australia – providing helpful gardening advice exclusively for market goers.
Charity partner, St John Ambulance will be featuring their new Community First Aid Training Vehicle – the CPR LAB, giving everyone the opportunity to participle in CPR and defibrillator demonstrations.
ABC personalities and volunteers will run free scheduled tours of the refurbished ABC building including TV and radio studios from 9am-11.15am. Visitors are reminded to arrive early and book in to secure their placement.
Held twice a year, the ABC Gardeners’ Market has raised over $350,000 for South Australian charities since its inception 26 years ago.
Entry is by gold coin donation with all proceeds collected on the day supporting St John Ambulance. The money raised will go towards fitting out the new St John Ambulance community CPR Vehicle program.
Well-mannered furry friends on short leads are welcome and are the sole-responsibility of their owner.
Car parking will be tricky, be prepared to park in nearby streets, being mindful of our neighbours driveways and enjoy a short walk to the event.
