2022’s theme for Mardi Gras is United We Shine and looks towards a brighter future for the rainbow family. To celebrate diversity and inclusion, we have created some Pride Kokedama balls in rainbow colours, and some bejewelled ones too. These will be available at Eden Gardens in Macquarie Park and our Gro stores in Bondi, Miranda and Warringah. It’s a small gesture to remind us all that we are growing in love.
We also have two wonderful installations at Eden Gardens Macquarie Park that celebrate inclusion. One is called Ritual Rainbow Ceremony, by Jayanto Tan, and the other is called Rainbow Ceremony, by Akira Kamada, and was created after the gay marriage legislation was passed. It rejoices in the many colours of the spectrum in an eye-catching arc along the bride lawn.
For something a little different and fun, check out this interview with Tim Entwisle, director of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, by our horticultural journalist Meredith Kirton about Sex in the Garden.
