On Sunday 15th March 2015, the magnificent gardens of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch's Cruden Farm will be open to the public to raise funds for not-for-profit medical research organisation Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.

Guests are invited to pack a picnic, pre-purchase a picnic hamper (when purchasing tickets online or via calling 1300 728 900) or enjoy the available refreshments on the day. Guests can also enjoy live entertainment, hear from gardening experts and learn more about healthy living from Baker IDI's heart and diabetes staff.

From face painting to vintage cars, the line up of activities offers something for people of all ages, including:
  • Special guest speaker Anne Latreille, gardening author
  • Jaguar Club Victoria vintage car display
  • Live chamber music and bush ballads
  • Children's entertainers
  • Sausage sizzle and refreshments
  • Devonshire tea
  • Premium Victorian wine
  • Fresh produce and homemade jams and relishes
  • Plant stalls
  • Baby farmyard animals
  • Face-painting and other children's activities
  • A raffle and silent auction, with fantastic prizes

Baker IDI researchers will be on hand to discuss the latest advances in medical research in diabetes and heart disease.

Proceeds will help support Baker IDI's researchers and their mission to improve the quality of health for all Australians.
