This area of Beechmont’s activities is a work in progress. Late in 2016 we held the first of our events, several garden parties and a retreat, all of which were hugely successful. Over the next few months an events calendar will be created and posted here on the website. These events will be open to the public.
Meanwhile as a paying guest we can create private events and workshops just for you - please contact us here > Below are some of the events we are considering on our calendar, and images from the events we held last year.
Events to Come
Visit a commercial cut flower nursery grower led by one of the fabulous floral stylists from Flowers Vasette in Fitzroy, then tour the Beechmont garden to pick pieces to make an arrangement and create your own arrangement to take home. Includes lunch midway, and coffee to finish.
The Fragrant Garden
Join Eddie, our head gardener, for a tour of Beechmont and discussion on creating a fragrant garden. This will be followed by a practical demonstration of how to design the garden plan and placement of plants. Included afternoon tea.
Learn and lunch. Follow chef Sebastian as he talks to local growers, prepares a meal with the produce he has chosen, cooks up a storm and plates it for you to eat. Perhaps stay the night after?
Autumn Garden Party
An all day event with gate proceeds to the local CFA, the gardens will be open for BYO picnics or pick up a pre-booked hamper or pre-order a spit roast lunch. Enjoy music, wine tasting, join garden tours, look at artists working plein air, and buy fresh flowers and farmers market produce.
High Tea & Flowers
What a splendiferous way to spend an afternoon in the country. High tea includes a glass of sparkling. Each event includes a special guest speaker, flower styling demonstration and discussion about creating your own special event.
