Garden States - A Forum for Cultivating Ethnobotanical Plants, Knowledge and Community

Greetings friends 


Important Update:  As most of you will be aware, the global outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the recent Australian restrictions on mass gatherings have led to the cancellation of many planned events in the coming months.


In the interest of public health, EGA has moved the Garden States Botanical Symposium from the original date of Saturday, 9th of May to Sunday, 6th December 2020


This new date allows us to keep the same venue and event format, so it's the most logical move. It is our traditional outdoor symposium weekend, so it should be familiar to many of you in the community. We expect the program will also be much the same, but given the circumstances, some slight changes may be expected.


Any current ticket will be valid for the new date, and we encourage you to support us and still attend this exceptional day! However, if you cannot attend the new date, you can contact [email protected] and arrange a full refund (less booking fees). If you require a refund please let us know as soon as possible.


We're immensely grateful for your support of our botanical initiative. Entheogenesis Australis is a volunteer-run charitable, educational organisation, and the sudden event move has had a financial impact, so if you like what we do and the projects we're producing, you can support us via the following link: https://hub.benojo.com/cause/5df0d1193bb27900356e621c


We have pulled together a richly diverse program from across Australia, New Zealand and beyond, including keynote presentations from internationally acclaimed artist Janet Laurence (AU), Dr Suresh Muthukumarasway (NZ) on microdosing studies, Dr Margaret Ross and Dr Martin Williams (AU) on Melbourne's St Vincent's Hospital psilocybin trial, Kirsty MacLeod (NZ) on ibogaine therapy, Monica Barratt (AU)  on trends in ethnobotanical plant data from the Global Drug Survey, and psychedelic critical thinker David Nickles(NZ/USA) discussing the latest underground research. They will be joined by a host of other botanically minded talent for a full day of programming over two spaces. Gather with us to expand your mind, body, community and garden.

Local speakers include, Communacacian, Jef Baker, Rachel Gagen, and Nick Sun.


There will be two Panels on the day: Psychedelics and ethics, and Botanical art panel.


Workshops include: Darklight & Caine Barlow will be running two workshops - a basics and then an advanced workshop, Amanda Morglund will demonstrate the principles of mycroremediation, Rodni Chisar will be doing a cactus workshop, and Beau Meister a horticulture workshop.  Beau Meister will also be leading a mushroom foray on the 10th of May, details closer to the date.

Other people on the day will include Meredith Drinkell and Nick Wallis.


As our last few EGA symposiums and events have sold out well in advance and tickets are strictly limited, we highly recommend booking your Garden States tickets early. Early Bird tickets are available until November 9th if they are not sold out before. We also offer discounted tickets for First Nations people and mothers/sole parents, as well as concession & hardship tickets.


You can find the Garden States Facebook event group here.
