In 2015 Sacred Tree Markets made the decision to focus on becoming an environmentally sustainable event. All stallholders were asked to provide environmentally friendly packaging alternatives. Plastic carry bags & styrofoam were deleted from our events and recycling facilities were introduced.
Sacred Tree Markets ask that whilst visiting our events patrons please utilise these facilities. Together we can co-create a sustainable future.

Ganga Ma (Jess Rowarth) has a passion for conscious consumerism and the movement back to ‘slow processes’. She believes that cultural, environmental and financial sustainability is dependent on slowing down the processes in production and moving away from models of ‘fast-fashion’.
“I am really inspired by conscious consumerism & grass roots movements towards local design and production. I love seeing local businesses doing well. It is a real driver for me to keep pushing forward.” Ganga Ma said.
Ganga Ma created Sacred Tree Markets with her then sister-in-law, Penny Nowland back in 2012 on the inspiration to create a community space for the Branxton, Hunter Valley area.
In 2014 she took over sole ownership of Sacred Tree Markets.
Ganga Ma is a qualified Ignite Your Spirit therapist and Crystal Dreaming practitioner and is available for consultations and healing by appointment. Please contact us for more information.

In an ancient time, the Creator bore a Sacred Tree.
Its roots delved deep into Mother Earth and its branches were held fast in the embrace of Father Sky.
The trees breath held the wisdom of all creation and the rings within its trunk held many lifetimes of abundance.
The Creators wish is that this place would be a meeting ground for the townspeople.
That all stories would be welcome here and through the gathering of the people the community would find the strength, humility, healing and peace.
The townspeople heard the whispers and began to meet beneath the branches of the Sacred Tree.
In this place of miracles their inspiration poured forth, their produce flourished and their wars were traded with a new sense of purpose.
The townspeople grew prosperous, they met with new found joy and their souls were nourished by the inspiration in the whispers of the Sacred Tree.
A new market now grows beneath its branches……
