The Canowindra Garden Club along with Charles and Eva Curran of Noojee Lea Homestead are very excited to be hosting one of Australia’s leading landscape designers Paul Bangay in Canowindra this November.
The inaugural Spring event will be held on Saturday 18th November at Noojee Lea Homestead showcasing the recently completed Paul Bangay designed Walled Garden and Western Courtyard. Paul has created beautiful gardens in Australia and overseas for the past 25
years. He lives at “Stonefields” a 100-acre property near Daylesford in Victoria which is open for seasonal guided tours.
Paul Bangay has written eight books on garden design and there will be two signed copies of his latest book for raffle on the day. His best design tip is “Don’t clutter and always have fewer but better objects. Keep it simple and let the actual plant material be the hero of the garden.”
The Garden Club is holding the event to raise much needed money for the Canowindra Hospital. After visiting last week and meeting with Janice Rumph the new Health Service Manager she shared her vision to transform the current patients lounge into a lovely spot for families and patients to come together.
The lounge desperately needs new flooring, blinds, artwork, furniture and a coat of paint and the Garden Club is hoping to donate a significant amount after this Spring Event. The Canowindra St Vincent De Paul have also offered to donate funds to go towards a “Quiet Room” within the patient lounge.
