Get Involved

Creative Harvest brings Gippsland and our broader metro and regional communities together. It’s a magical event that celebrates the practical, heart-driven way we do things. If you’d like to join our extended Creative Harvest family, we’d love to have you.


Seven ways you can help grow Creative Harvest

1. Volunteer

Join around 100 indispensable volunteers who help over the weekend by:

  • Putting up signage and directing parking

  • Welcoming visitors and validating tickets

  •  Answering visitors’ questions

  • Setting up and dismantling displays  


Note: In return for working one day of the weekend, all volunteers receive a free pass to explore gardens on the other day.

2. Open your garden

Our experienced team makes it easy, fun, and safe for you to be involved. Our volunteers take care of your garden entry. They collect tickets, scan QR codes, and can even directing parking.

You don’t have to:

  • Be in the garden all the time. It’s OK to head out for school sport pick up or take lunch breaks inside

  • Answer non-stop questions from visitors. We work with you to create a simple FACTS page that answers visitor questions about your garden

  • Have a specific size or type of garden or a perfectly manicured one. Creative Harvest celebrates and showcases all the wonderful, inventive ways we use our space to produce food

Tiny back yards, large farms, and everything in between will spark visitors’ interest and inspire their efforts. 

3. Sponsor us

Link your ‘do good’ brand to this well-loved and respected regional Victorian event.

Choose from a range of sponsorship levels and options. Our experienced marketing team will work with you to tailor a sponsorship package that matches your brand perfectly and showcases your support for our Gippsland community.
