Got our tickets today. So excited, looking forward to my first time.
🌿Local landscapers Lara Bui and Isaac Weston have created this permanent concept garden at Tauranga Racecourse. How amazing does it look?! 🙌
You'll be able to experience this at the entrance to Bloom in the Bay our Festival Hub.
Want to know the inspiration behind it?
The Bay of Plenty land and sea are the inspiration behind the concept garden. The garden's main feature are the Totems or Pou whenua which in their design, reflect the Kaimai ranges, Wairoa River and stingray of the inner harbour.
The artwork will incorporate copper into locally sourced railway sleepers and will stand with a feature tree - Acer palmatum Bloodgood.
Isaac is a Tauranga artist whose design process incorporates fire, water, air and acids to reveal the hidden elements of metal. His work can be seen at the galleries and garden centres throughout the North Island under the brands of "Re.Work.It" and "Isaac Weston Artist". www.reworkit.co.nz/
Lara runs local indoor plant company Cool Plants, and her back ground is in landscape and design. www.coolplants.co.nz/
This will be their second concept garden for the Garden and Art festival, what legends! ... See MoreSee Less
