Euroa Open Gar­dens on this Novem­ber

Mansfield Courier - - WHAT’S ON -

HOT on the heels of Mans­field’s two Open Gar­den week­ends, the Euroa dis­trict is throw­ing open the gar­den gate and invit­ing the whole Mans­field com­mu­nity to get along to their pro­duc­tion of the same.

Gar­den De­sign­fest, Vic­to­ria’s largest and most pres­ti­gious open gar­den event, is host­ing four world class gar­dens in the Euroa re­gion on Novem­ber 19 and 20.

Gar­den De­sign­fest of­fers the op­por­tu­nity for the public to visit pri­vate gar­dens which have been de­signed by some of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing gar­den de­sign­ers.

The event – which en­com­passes 45 gar­dens across the state – in­cludes four from Euroa, be­ing:

267 Long­wood Gobur Road, Creightons Creek, de­signed by Paul Ban­gay;

“Killeen”, 224 Long­wood-Mans­field Road, Creightons Creek, de­signed by Rick Eck­er­s­ley;

“The Falls”, 142 Long­wood Gobur Road, Long­wood, de­signed by Robert Boyle; and

“Lakithi”, 948 Top Road, Terip Terip, de­signed by Gail van Rooyen.

Paul Ban­gay, Rick Eck­er­s­ley and Robert Boyle are na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally fa­mous gar­den de­sign­ers and one look at Gail van Rooyen’s gar­den “Lakithi” shows she is clearly in the same class.

The gar­dens are open from 10am to 5pm on each day of the Novem­ber week­end.

En­try to each gar­den is $12 or an all gar­dens ticket may be pur­chased for $40.

Tick­ets are avail­able on the day, or on line from www.gar­den­de­sign­fest.

Gar­den De­sign­fest is a Ro­tary project, and all pro­ceeds go to char­ity – this year, a share of funds will be do­nated to the Euroa Health Aged Care Fa­cil­ity.

Food and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able at dif­fer­ent gar­dens through­out the day, as well as a plant sale.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing im­ages of the gar­dens and back­ground on t he de­sign­ers, go t o www. gar­den­de­sign­

EUROA IS OPEN: Four mag­nif­i­cent Open Gar­dens will be fea­tured in Euroa later this month, in­clud­ing “Lakithi”, de­signed by Gail van Rooyen.
