In lieu of the physical conference, on December 5th 2021 we are hosting a day long webcast fundraiser. For this event we have curated a selection of the finest international and local psychedelic and botanical minds. For more information and ticketing click here.
Garden States 2022 is a not-for-profit initiative, designed to encourage community building around medicinal plants, research, and psychedelic culture. Get your hands dirty and learn how to grow and share ethnobotanical plants from the experts. Participate in citizen science and meet like-minded botanical folk from across Australia.
Our program is designed to explore relationships between humankind and plants, including gardening, conservation, sustainability, culture, art, altered states, spirituality, philosophy, psychedelic research, harm reduction and politics.
This conference will be a hybrid event that takes place across three days; one full day of online streaming for international and remote presenters, as well as a two day in-person conference event that will also be streamed. Friday the 2nd of December 2022 will be the streaming-only day and Saturday and Sunday the 3rd & 4th December will be an in-person community gathering, streamed online for those unable to attend the event in person.
Garden States keynote guests include, but will in no way be limited to, David Holmgren, Dr Margaret Ross, Bruce Pascoe, Janet Laurence, Suresh Muthukumaraswamy, Dr Alison Pouliot, The Seed SistAs, John Seed, Martin Williams, Dr Monica Barratt, and the legendary Keeper Trout.
If you can’t make it along in person, you can still be part of this conference. For the first time, we’ll be allowing people from across Australia and around the world to tune in. Online attendees will have access to the main stage live conference stream made up of keynote lectures and discussion panels. All attendees will also receive a copy of our renowned conference journal.
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.
Due to COVID-19, the conference information on this website is currently under review, some updates and corrections will be expected.
We are moving the conference to the first weekend in December 2022, following continuing restrictions on social gatherings due to COVID-19. Ticket sales are temporarily suspended.
