01 May Buda’s Secret Garden
We are deeming our Secret Garden program for the Castlemaine State Festival a great success, showcasing the secret delights of the garden with a pot-pourri of site specific artworks, a treasury of literary talks and a cornucopia of hands on workshops and kids activities.
We created the Secret Garden as a haven of curiosity for all ages. In recent years, Buda has held a Traditional Arts Fair, and for the Castlemaine State festival we explored the Traditional Arts Fair themes of traditional, horticultural and culinary arts. At set times throughout the festival, the Secret Garden will hosted exhibitions, hands-on workshops, talks and site-specific artworks, as well as a treasure hunt to encourage foragers of all ages to wander around the garden and discover hidden delights.
