Spring Scarecrow Festival

12 – 17 September 2020

Theme: Life in our Oceans


This year is our Neighbourhood Garden’s 6th Annual Scarecrow Festival. Our theme is “Life in our Oceans”.

This free event provides a great opportunity for schools, community groups, parents, children, grandchildren, or organisations to work together on a fun and creative scarecrow-making project. In addition to being a great team building exercise, it provides a platform for all types of learning in a fun environment, creating an engaging discussion starter for teaching recycling and sustainability principles.

Your scarecrow might be a favourite animal living on, or visiting, our wonderful Great Barrier Reef. Or maybe you could make a group of scarecrows showing some of our wonderful wildlife that lives in Australia’s waters, or at the seaside: crabs, fish, octopus, sharks, seaweed, whales, a coral reef, a bristling sea urchin, colourful hermit crabs… the possibilities are endless!

Although COVID-19 continues to limit face-to-face participation, the popular Scarecrow Parade roadside display on Comrie Street will be back on Saturday 17 September as part of the Tuggeranong Uniting Church Floriade Reimagined flower display.

Participation is easy!
