Open Garden Sunday August 12

We’ve volunteered ourselves to be part of the West Hobart Environment Network’s Open  Garden Day next weekend.
So I’m dressed in my gardening clothes and about to head outside and tidy up the place a bit.
Want to come and have a look? Here’s the promo email.

Dear WHEN members and supporters

The daffodils are out and the daphne is filling the West Hobart streets with perfume.

You are invited to shake off the winter blues and come and visit some lovely gardens in West Hobart. See how your neighbours are dealing with the challenges of home fruit and vegie growing, get some tips and enjoy a chat with fellow gardeners. Maybe go home with some cuttings or plants! Gardens with sections for native plants will also be included.

Five West Hobart gardeners will be “at home” to neighbours on Sunday 12 August 2012. The day will be divided into morning (10.00 – 12.30) and afternoon (2.00 – 4.00) sessions, with three gardens open in the morning, two in the afternoon.

This open day is organised by WHEN’s Gardening and Food group (GAF), and is inspired by the highly successful “Gardening with the Bush” Garden Tour which was organised by Sustainable Living Tasmania some years ago. To respect the generosity of our generous gardener hosts, people planning to visit will need to register with GAF. You will then be sent a copy of the day’s schedule, with addresses and times.

To register for the Winter Gardens Tour, email whenvnet@gmail.com or phone Margaret on 6231 4751 .
