The AGIA for the second year attended the Renaissance Herbs Chilli & Herbs festival held in the beautiful Yarra Valley at Wandin, Vic.
The AGIA continued its charter to educate the public and garlic growers on the different characteristics of the hundreds of cultivars of garlic growing in Australia. People were particularly interested in the display of seven different types of garlic provided by Penny Woodward. The most common statement for the weekend was "I had no idea there were so many types of garlic"
Led by Penny Leon, John P and Bruce took turns in 'manning' the stand and sharing our knowledge with interested festival growers.
Penny was engaged all weekend with talks and information sessions in the main presentation arenas. Her knowledge on all things herbs and garlic is unsurpassed and we are lucky to be able to call her own of our own.
Thank you to all who helped out on the stand for the weekend. We are confident that through our efforts, there are some better informed people out there now.
