The annual “Ipswich Home Gardener’s Expo®” is an entirely owned project of the Glebe Garden Club (Ipswich), an activity of the Glebe Road Uniting Church, Ipswich. The Glebe Garden Club is a well known community Garden Club for the people of Ipswich and surrounding areas.

This year, the 2018 Ipswich Home Gardener’s Expo will be held on Saturday 25th August 2018 at the complex located between Eileen and Green Streets on Glebe Road, Booval, Ipswich, between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm. 

The event comprised more than 75 stalls consisting of numerous plant stalls, garden tools, garden products and ornaments, craft, bark painting, pots and hangers, and much more. A Plant Crèche will be on site to look after your plants and an ATM will also be available should you require funds.

Each year, the Glebe Garden Club (Ipswich) supports several local charitable organisations to be part of the Garden Expo. There is always a charity supported each year by the club, and they can conduct a stall and raise much needed funds for their cause. An example of this is the sponsoring of “Habitat for Humanity” for the excellent work they do in getting hurting families into an affordable home. Other examples are Leukemia Foundation, Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer.

The “Ipswich Home Gardener’s Expo®” has proved a huge success in previous years, despite changing climatic conditions. Many people make a day of it in more ways than one. Some allow time to visit Queens Park and the Nerima Japanese Garden.
This is a huge annual event and requires enormous support from many people. The support from the Ipswich City Council each year has been invaluable. The cooperation of all stallholders each year is outstanding which helps make a great day for all concerned. Each year, there are so many people that help make the Garden Expo such a huge success. Accordingly; The Glebe Garden Club (Ipswich) is enormously thankful to everyone involved in any way for helping make the “Ipswich Home Gardener’s Expo” such a huge success every year.
