Escape to the country on Sundays this January and February at Acre of Roses. Take home bee-friendly flower pickings, enjoy local gourmet refreshments and learn about sustainable horticulture.

About Acre of Roses

Acre of Roses is a newly opened working micro-flower farm of more than 1500 heritage rose bushes, a luxury wellness accommodation, and an event venue nestled in the regional village of Trentham, just an hour from Melbourne.

Featured in multiple publications including Country Style and Green Magazine, consider Acre of Roses your restorative sanctuary for a country escape, romantic getaway, or girls' retreat - all centred around indulging each of your senses.

About Farmgate Sundays

On Sundays in January and February of 2019 from 2pm to 5pm (excluding 20 January), enjoy local gourmet produce, soak up the heady smell as you wander through more than 1500 organically and sustainably grown heritage rose bushes, take the opportunity to pick-your-own, or choose from the curated selection at the Rose Bar, AND take in an educational session centered around one aspect of sustainable horticulture so that you can go home with newly gained insights into this way of life:

About each session:

  • 6th Jan & 3rd Feb: Bee keeping exploration

  • 17th Feb: Closed loop farming & composting skill share
