Saturday, October 28 will see a showcase of youth performers and educational workshops held at the Manning Valley Community Gardens in Wingham.

The event, ‘Seeds & Song – A Festival of Nature and Nurture’ is being organised by 14-year-old Wingham High School student Georgia Hudson with the support of Youth Frontiers.

Georgia, a talented singer, recently had her own dreams realised when she had the opportunity to perform on the Akoostik stage with her singing teacher Jake Davey.

Now the teenager is giving other local youth an opportunity to showcase their musical skills by giving them a set on the Seeds & Song stage.

The line-up is as follows:

  • 11am-11.30am Jack Kelly
  • 11.35-noon Jorja Bulley
  • 12.10-12.40pm Xavier Hunt
  • 12.45-1.15pm Georgia Hudson
  • 1.20-1.40pm Jack Kelly
  • 1.45-2.05 Jorja Bulley
  • 2.10-2.30pm Xavier Hunt
  • 2.35-3pm Georgia Hudson

As well as showcasing local young talent the day will bring together organisations and businesses that will deliver a diverse range of environmental and self-nurture workshops.

Georgia also hopes it helps to raise awareness of the Manning Valley Community Gardens.

“A lot of people don’t know where the gardens are,” she said.

Entry to the event is free although donations are encouraged with all proceeds going to the community gardens to help fund a new water tank.

There will also be a barbecue, kids activities, worm farming workshop and garden tours.

Wingham Community Gardens is behind the old courthouse on Farquhar Street, Wingham.

Seeds & Song will be held Saturday from 11am-3pm.
