Open gar­den day on this week­end

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Ber­ri­gan lo­cal Lau­rie Thomp­son is open­ing his gar­den to the com­mu­nity to come along and ad­mire.

In con­junc­tion with the Ber­ri­gan Com­mu­nity Gar­den, Mr Thomp­son’s gar­den will be open on Sun­day from 10.30am.

The com­mu­nity can ex­plore Mr Thomp­son’s gar­den which has been de­scribed as ‘‘like walk­ing through dif­fer­ent rooms of a house’’.

But the day will also pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the Ber­ri­gan Com­mu­nity Gar­den.

Please note that due to the fragility of Mr Thomp­son’s gar­den no chil­dren or pets are al­lowed.

The gar­den group is start­ing to grow in num­bers and their veg­etable patch at the back of the swim­ming pool is com­ing along nicely.

The Ber­ri­gan Com­mu­nity Gar­den re­cently in­stalled an ar­bour and will have trom­bone zuc­chini and pur­ple climb­ing beans even­tu­ally grow­ing over it.

Re­cently the gar­den­ers re­ceived a par­cel from Green Har­vest Or­ganic Gar­den­ing Sup­plies, con­grat­u­lat­ing them on re­ceiv­ing the of­fer of low ger­mi­na­tion seeds.

Check out Mr Thomp­son’s gar­den from 10.30am to 2pm at 29 Cor­co­ran Street Ber­ri­gan. En­try cost $5 and in­cludes morn­ing tea, all pro­ceeds will go to the group.
