Permaculture Hunter and Purple Pear Farm are joining forces to take over the Garden Stage at next month's Taste Festival.
Throughout the two-day festival, the two groups will present a number of demonstrations on permaculture and gardening.
The demonstrations will give people the opportunity to learn about growing produce, permaculture tips and hints on sustainable living and edible garden design, edible plants and techniques to use what people have or can reuse to get growing.
Permaculture Hunter and Purple Pear Farm representative Mark Brown said the two groups were incredibly excited to be part of the festival.
"We are going to manage the garden stage, and we have a fabulous lineup for people," he said.
"We will be looking at native bees, food forests, general food production and a whole range of other topics. Primarily, the focus will be on having fun in the garden and how to grow good, nutritious food."
There will also be a smorgasbord of tasty treats, stalls, activities and musicians scattered throughout The Levee over the weekend.
Mr Brown said the festival was an opportunity for people to come together to learn and celebrate.
"It's community building. It's the sense of community - people coming from all different areas," he said.
"A lot of people probably haven't heard of permaculture before, so it's the blending of communities."
Don't miss celebrity chef Adam Liaw who will be taking over The Kitchen Stage to share his insight, ideas and culinary experience.
Maitland Events officer Beth Anastasio said more than 10,000 people were expected at the festival this year.
