Gar­dens on dis­play

Kyabram Free Press - - WHAT'S ON - By Charmayne Al­lison

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.
