On April 2 and 3 2016, Kandos will again showcase its gardens in the CWA Kandos Gardens Fair. And this time around we can promise it will be bigger and better than ever.
Historic country cottages with Winton outside Rylstone
Over the weekend a dozen gardens will be open to the public – all diverse. From “in town” gardens to working properties, artist homes, newly established gardens and even a Convent. In addition, there will be lots to see and do.
We are so excited to announce that Costa Georgiadis, yes, from ABC Gardening, will be coming, as well as gardening writer, Fiona Ogilvie, who writes for The Land and Diego Bonetto, a “wild food forager”. All will be available and at gardens throughout the weekend.
In addition we have a Saturday Market, art trail and so much more for keen gardeners, including workshops and talks. A full program will be available shortly.
Converted community halls offer surprises to every visitor
This time around, Kandos CWA are sponsoring the event and are actively involved in the organisation. The theme is “Gardening in a harsh environment” and the gardens will showcase how wonderful and different gardens can be established and flourish in an area with limited water, bitter frosts and real summers.
Expansive country properties with resilient natives and handmade drystone walls
You’ll hear and find out lots more between now and 2 and 3 April but we would love to see you so put the dates in your calendar. We recommend taking the weekend to explore the full program and see all the gardens – in which case, book in accommodation early. The local Rylstone and Kandos website has lots of accommodation information.
We will see you all on 2 and 3 April 2016!
