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
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.
