The 2018 edition of the Backyard Gardeners Show is taking on a picnic theme, and Tusker Lite will be on hand to provide the flavour. Ugandans who love their gardening can look forward to a fun day of learning new gardening tips and tricks at the Saturday July 7, 2018 event, which will be hosted at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel Gardens.
The annual event whose previous two editions were held in April 2016 and July 2017 respectively is organised under the theme “The Garden Picnic: Lifestyle, Family and Fashion” and is promising a glamorous and fun day away from hustle and bustle of life.
“Gardening is part of who we are as a people in Uganda, and we believe it should be a fun activity. This year’s theme focuses on the garden picnic and no picnic is complete without Tusker Lite in the picture,” said Grace Namutebi, Brand Manager – Premium Beers at Uganda Breweries Limited.
She added that Tusker Lite’s involvement in this year’s Backyard Gardeners Show is born of a partnership entered into with My Food Network as part of the Tusker Lite & Food agenda.
The Backyard Gardeners Show is an event designed as a lifestyle and family fair and will feature exhibitors like Builders Yard, Letshego and Davis and Shirtliff among others. On the lineup of guest speakers are Diana Nambatya Nansubuga, who is a recipient of the 2016 American Express NGen Leadership Award, and Essau Geofrey Galukande, Deputy Director (Directorate of Gender Community Services & Production, KCCA) among others.
The show will feature music from Myko Ouma, Sharifah Musisi and Michael Kitanda, as well as a fashion showcase from Paple Rayn.
