Upcoming events

With all the glorious spring rain Canberra’s gardens are looking better than ever.

This spring the Open Gardens Canberra Committee is holding a limited open garden season while we develop and implement effective Covid-19 safety practices. Our first open garden will be on 24-25 October 2020.  Further open gardens are planned for 7-8 and 14-15 November, subject to the guidelines in place and the effectiveness of our processes for this first open garden. As the situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping you safe. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we endeavour to keep the open gardens spirit alive at this unusual time.
