Living in Canberra’s winters and summers is made joyful and easy in this wonderful solar passive house and garden. The garden’s 40 year history is present in the old fruit trees, remnant pine trees, an old camellia, Alister Clark roses, and the curved pathways, steps, and rock structures. New courtyards, garden beds, steps and paths follow the original template.  New plantings include local indigenous species wherever possible, annuals, pollinators, and seasonal vegetables, and a ‘guerrilla’ garden out into the urban ‘park’ planted with mainly local grassland species.

In addition to the open garden, there will be:

  • 10 am-2 pm Sat and Sun – market stall selling garden themed gifts (electronic payment available and preferred) and  tea and cake
  • 11 am and 3 pm  Sat and Sun – Solar passive house talk
  • 2 pm Sat – Concert by ‘Wattas’

Sarah’s garden notes are available.
