As we hold several fund raising events yearly at The Secret Garden & Nursery, we felt that introducing the Scarecrow Festival would not only offer our local community the opportunity to enjoy this delightful yearly event. We felt it would also be a wonderful addition to our beautiful Secret Garden & Nursery, which is the perfect setting for such a festival.

Each year we invite Disability organizations, all levels of schools, Aged Care facilities, local businesses, and the general public to participate in the creation of and entering a Scarecrow into the competition.

We aim to be able to encourage local businesses to participate and display their own Scarecrow creations in shop windows in the weeks leading up to the festival, to create excitement and anticipation within the community for the arrival of this festival.

On Saturday 19th November 2022 we celebrated our Scarecrow Festival, we had 32 market stalls and 17 scarecrow entries that compiled of many different looking scarecrows, from the Queen and Paddington Bear with their marmalade sandwiches and a Chimney Sweep named Charlie. Fitzy and Fiona 1st from Fitzroy Aged Care in Windsor, Willow 2nd From Aberdoon at NWDS and Birds I View 3rd from OOSH Kurrajong. A fantastic day shared with many.
