The Serendipitous Garden

10am to 4pm, 24th and 25th November 2018

This prolific and mature native garden has tall trees at the front and a panoramic view of the Brindabellas. The back is a contrast, where woodland is interspersed with vegetable plots, a large berry patch, fruit trees, a chook shed and bee colonies.  Water tanks totalling 35,000 litres storage capacity go a significant way to quenching a water thirsty garden. The wide decks provide comfortable vantage points to observe the distant ranges, to share meals with friends and to relax and to engage in activities such as requeening beehives. The garden reflects the owners’ active but relaxed lifestyle.

Owners Lynne and Alan will reminisce about the garden’s evolution and inform visitors about keeping chooks and bees, growing berries and vegetables, managing possums and operating a notionally sustainable garden water supply.
