Basilea Farm Open Day
Basilea Living Herbs is an urban farm and wholesale nursery in the heart of the Moreton Bay region and only opens its doors to the public every 3rd Saturday of the month for this special Basilea Farm Open Day event.
Browse and purchase seasonal spray-free, sun-hardy 50mm pot seedlings including gourmet herbs, edible flowers and salad, spinach, and mustard greens. There is also a selection of books, garden, kitchen, and home products available to purchase.
Find everything you need to create your own kitchen garden with fresh herbs for cooking, salads, and teas; edible flowers for baking and salads; and vitamin-packed greens for stir-fries and salads.
Meet Owner and Grower, Sarah and her team, who are on hand to give advice on the 80+ varieties of plants available and give essential, localised growing tips so you can grow them at home.
Don't forget your hat, sunscreen and a bag or box to take your plants home. Also, bring your used Basilea pots and we'll recycle them.
Look forward to seeing you then!
