Event description
A Gathering of Gardeners in a Small Irish Coastal Town

About this event

Diarmuid Gavin and Paul Smyth are delighted to announce a Gardening Get Together

Their Garden Festival is a celebration of all things gardening.....presented in their unique style

It’s a 3 day event taking place in Ballinskelligs, Kerry, Ireland from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th September 2021

Planned as mix between the acclaimed Fyre Festival and Father Ted’s Night Of The Nearly Dead....our Garden Festival will be the worst

It’s a chance for the garden community which has emerged through their nightly garden instagram broadcast on @diarmuidgavin - christened the Riff Raff - to gather safely, to meet and celebrate gardening, a magnificent community....and life itself.

The gathering is not confined to the instagram community...if you love gardening of any type and are passionate about plants it’s the place to be!

However regulars can expect what they’ve come to expect....bad music, great gardening and outdoor anarchy.

The long weekend will feature garden talks and demonstrations from us and other gardening guests, the Great Unfair Gardening Quiz, Our Gardeners Question Time, and Rory’s Rare Plants Sale.

There’ll also be the Riff Raff Ball......an evening centred on gracious dining with magnificent outfits being a must and decadent floral headwear

We’ll play Gardening Bingo....and dance at the Gardeners Disco

And the climax of the weekend will be an event called The Revolting Riff Raff......

This is up to you! Our friends the Riff Raff.

It’s your time to revolt, pick up your trowels and extract sweet revenge!

Whether you plan a retrial of Paul, organise a floral parade through the town there’s no show like a Riff Raff Show!

If the Festival cannot take place in September due to covid restrictions it will go ahead from Friday May 27 to Sunday May 29 2021

There will be 20 plus workshops on a variety of topics including the following:

Talks about and demonstrations of Edible Gardens featuring good choices for new gardeners, seed starting, planning, harvesting and beyond...

Pollinators & Plants : Understanding natives, bees, butterflies, birds, plant selection, etc.

How to plant the perfect pot!

Urban Gardening : Creative solutions for successful gardening in smaller spaces, raised beds, containers, etc.

Houseplants : Care fundamentals, light, propagation, trends, etc.

From Daffodils to Dahlias...bulbs, tubers and corms

Explorations of organic gardening, no dig gardening, soil, compost and chicken keeping
