Garden States – Cultivating Ethnobotanical Plant Knowledge

Garden States 2022 is a not-for-profit initiative, designed to explore relationships between humankind and plants, including gardening, conservation, sustainability, culture, art, altered states, spirituality, philosophy, psychedelic research, harm reduction and politics.

Get your hands dirty and learn to grow and share ethnobotanical plants like the experts. Participate in citizen science and meet like-minded botanical folk from across Australia.

Garden States 2022 is a hybrid conference, including keynote presenters, David Holmgren, Dr Margaret Ross, Janet Laurence, Renee Harvey, Suresh Muthukumaraswamy, Dr Alison Pouliot, The Seed SistAs, John Seed, Snu Voogelbreinder, and luminaries Dennis McKenna, and Keeper Trout who are streaming in.

Garden States 2022 will takes place over three full days. There are two main ticket types with some variations and discount options. Attendees may choose a ‘Streaming Ticket’ or an ‘In-person Ticket’. Friday the 2nd of December 2022 will be entirely online for all attendees, while Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December will include a community gathering for all in-person attendees, broadcast online for those with streaming tickets and unable to attend in person. All ticket holders will receive a copy of the 2022 conference Journal and after access to the recorded stream to rewatch for four months after the event.

Our last few conferences and in-person events have sold out well in advance of the event, and tickets are strictly limited, so we highly recommend booking your Garden States tickets early.

While we do offer discounted tickets for First Nations people, concession holders and people experiencing hardship, there are no single-day tickets,. Young adults must attend with a guardian and have tickets purchased by a guardian on their behalf. Remember, in-person tickets are limited. Current prices are available until November 1st or until sold out. On November 2nd, we will offer a small number of final release tickets available at final release pricing.

The in-person conference gathering will be composed of around thirty lectures, twelve workshops and five discussion panels that have been curated to help you along the journey to plant seeds for earth, body, and mind.

Garden States 2022 will offer much more than even our most enthusiastic ethnobotanical friends could have hoped. With that in mind, we hope to see you all at this extraordinary event and wish you, your family, and your communities the best over the coming months.
