Gardens on display
TEN of Kyabram’s stunning gardens will be open to green thumbs and gardening enthusiasts on the upcoming Open Garden Day.
The event, run by the Rotary Club of Kyabram, aims to showcase some of the breathtaking gardening in town while raising money for a microscope for Kyabram District Health Service’s ear, nose and throat specialist.
More than $3000 was raised to support the Campaspe Cohuna ‘Let’s Read’ program in 2015, its inaugural year.
‘‘This event is run in conjunction with the Country Music Festival and Bush Market,’’ Rotary member Carol Howell said.
‘‘There are so many beautiful gardens in town, it was tough to choose which ones to show — plus people have to be comfortable with strangers walking through their gardens.
‘‘If you’ve got a really good garden, this is a great way to show it off.’’
There will be a spread of different gardens on show, from shady and quirky to cactus and cottage.
‘‘There’ll be a lot of colour to enjoy, plus it’s a great way to gather ideas for your own garden,’’ Rotary member Barry Davies said.
The open garden day will be held on Sunday, November 12 between 10am and 4pm.
The cost is $20 per person (no cost for children).
Register on the day at the front of the hospital to receive a map.
Devonshire tea will also be served on the lawn at the front of the hospital between 2.30pm and 4pm.
