Upcoming local garden events
So many great events coming up – lots of open gardens, workshops and more!
Corryong Garden Getabout
weekend 12-13 November, 10am to 5pm
More than 10 gardens open, of all sorts! A pass for all gardens is $15/person. Or visit single gardens for $5/person. School children free. Coaches welcome. Passes are available from Corryong Neighbourhood Centre, Corryong Visitor Information Centre & some gardens.
Seed savers member Cathy Ross mentioned this event at our last gathering. She also noted: “Last year they organised a progressive dinner which visited 3 of the gardens at night. I am not sure if this is being planned again for this year but will let you know any details that I can find.
If anyone is planning to stay for dinner / overnight (there are more gardens open than can realistically be visited in one day) then I am happy to help either suggest commercial accommodation to suit or have some spare beds / camping space at my house.” — If you’d like to take Cathy up on her offer, contact Seed Savers and we’ll put you in touch.
