DATE: Sunday, March 29, 2020

TIME: 11 AM - 5 PM

VENUE: Mount Gnomon Farm, Ironcliffe Road, Penguin, TAS

ENTRY: Adults $15, Kids $5


Mount Gnomon Farm rests against the Dial Range – a tract of wilderness that stretches from Penguin to Cradle Mountain in Tasmania’s north-west.

Guy Robertson welcomes you to the farm: to taste the ethically-raised meat and garden produce in our dining room, to forage in our gardens and to wander through the paddocks on a guided secret life of pigs tour, and to learn from a farmer how good, honest food is produced.


Born and bred in Tasmania, Tino Carnevale has a background in Horticulture and Landscape Design but his main interests are edible plants and a hands on approach to home gardening. As well as being a presenter on ABC TV's Gardening Australia, Tino teaches gardening skills to both adults and children and is a regular contributor to magazines and blogging website GardenDrum.
