Welcome to the 2024 Bio·R Planting Festival, held at Frahns Farm once again!
This year, we’ve set ourselves a target of reconstructing 24 hectares of wildlife habitat with 48,000 seedlings to be planted. That’s a 20% increase on last year!

First introduced last year at the 2023 Bio·R Planting Festival, we charge a $10 registration fee for adults to partially cover the costs of catering (which is $25 per person). This will help us reduce food wastage and give our caterers a more accurate indication of numbers each day. Please note, children are free.
If you wish to cover the full cost of catering, you can choose to register with the $25 ticket option.
We thank you for your support and understanding.
As part of the ticket cost, we will be providing lunch and afternoon tea, along with tea, coffee and water throughout the day.
Please remember to bring your own plate, bowl, mug and utensils. There will be a wash-up station provided.
This year, we will be based at our Hartmann Rd Site. Address is 267 Hartmann Rd, Monarto SA 5254.
