The inaugural Rivendell Flower Show from the 23rd to the 24th of September 2017 will be the first event of its kind in the beautiful grounds of Thomas Walker Estate in Concord.
Rivendell as it is fondly known, will be opened to the public showcasing the first large scale flower show for the Inner West Sydney community. Bringing together displays and show gardens from up and coming floral designers and gardening personalities, the Rivendell Flower Show will allow the public to view spectacular displays and evoke an elegant mix of floral artistry, styling and design amidst the beautiful architecture of the estate grounds.
With the onset of the Spring season, the Rivendell Flower Show will be a celebration of our Australian lifestyle and great outdoors and will offer an extensive array of flower artistry and gardening presentations. Guests will have the opportunity to learn key floral arrangement techniques at the pop up classes and styling designs from TV gardening and lifestyle personalities. If you are a lover of flowers and garden displays, this is an event not to be missed!
All funds raised for this year’s Rivendell Flower Show will go towards Concord Hospital’s Department of Geriatric Medicine for the establishment of a gymnasium for Strong@Concord Program.
The Department of Geriatric Medicine at Concord Hospital cares for older people throughout the inner-west areas of Sydney, focusing on older people with multiple or complex medical problems and care needs.
A Centre for Strong@Concord was established at Balmain Hospital in 1999 (part of Geriatric Medicine) dedicated to delivering individually prescribed resistance exercise programs to older people by an Exercise Physiologist, with Dietitian input, under the medical supervision of an Geriatrician. With a new gymnasium planned for development at Concord, Strong@Concord will be able to service additional in-centre patients and expand the program to our community in the Inner West.
