Meet our Garlic Gurus

Join some of the country’s leading experts to learn about the many varieties of garlic, and how to grow it. Our 2020 Garlic Institute program also includes special sessions on organics, heirloom tomatoes and truffles.

Whilst dogs are welcome at our festival, we request that they do not enter the Garlic Institute.  This is to help preserve the floor in our town hall.

Water bowls and tethering points for leashes are provided in the covered area outside the Hall and our volunteers will be in attendance during each session in this area.

*Dogs must remain outside the Hall
