      OPEN GARDENS

      The Samford Edible Garden Trail (SEGT) is returning for 2024! Some of the gardens from prior years are opening again, plus we have a selection of new and inspiring edible gardens that will be open for viewing for the first time. 

      Expect anywhere between 10-15 gardens this year! A few will be open on both days, and some will be open on either Saturday OR Sunday. 

      Your ticket gives you access to both days of the Trail! 

      This is a self-paced Trail: You get to decide which gardens, and which order. You will have the opportunity to wander through the gardens at your own pace, as well as join (optional) garden tours run by some of the garden hosts themselves. Open hours for all gardens are 9am to 3pm.

      Ticketholders will be sent the Trail Guide/map with the address of each garden in the week before the Trail. This is to protect the privacy of the garden hosts between now and the Trail weekend. 

      More details (eg, garden summaries) will be added to our website as they become available. For all up-to-date information, follow us on our social channels and check back on the website:  samfordediblegardentrail.com.au 

      CAFES AND RESTAURANTS

      Once again, some of the local cafes will be showcasing locally grown produce and maybe even offering incentives to entice Trail goers. Watch this space.
