Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A GAR­DEN cafe at a her­itage-listed Pep­per­mint Grove prop­erty is among the list of at­trac­tions at this year’s Pres­by­te­rian Ladies’ Col­lege Open Gar­den Day.

Ten pri­vate prop­er­ties will open their gar­dens to the pub­lic this Fri­day.

Open Gar­den Day 2015 co-or­di­na­tor Dav­ina Gos­sage said that with the school cel­e­brat­ing its cen­te­nary year, the day would pay homage to the past, present and fu­ture with a mix of old and new gar­dens on dis­play.

“To com­mem­o­rate the PLC cen­te­nary, the day and ex­pan­sive gar­dens will re­flect the yes­ter­day, to­day, to­mor­row theme,” Ms Gos­sage said.

“The gar­dens and cor­re­spond­ing houses re­flect this theme with old be­com­ing new and sev­eral be­ing her­itage listed.”

Some of the gar­den­ers and land­scap­ers who de­sign and main­tain the gar­dens will be avail­able on the day to an­swer ques­tions and fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Anna Gare’s cook­ing demon­stra­tion last year, celebrity chef Aris­tos Pa­pan­droulakis will be on hand to give the crowd some ex­pert cook­ing tips. PLC Open Gar­den Day will be held from 10am-2pm. Tick­ets are avail­able on­line at www.try­book­ing. com/IJCV or at the gar­dens on the day.
