Canowindra High Schools Open Garden Day is on again on Saturday the 22nd October with the High School P&C rounding up seven of the best local gardens. Mark and Janelle Pearce have kindly opened their garden, which has undergone several changes over the years, and includes a lovely Silver Birch Forest. Kathryn and Nicholas O’Ryan have also opened their garden, which many have admired from the road as they drive past their place towards Mandurama, so this will be a treat to finally wander around and take in
Another garden with spectacular views is that of Pauline and John Jani, nestled in the hill above the O’Ryans place, this garden will showcase a floral display to take your breath away. Jim and Jean Goodacre are probably exhausted after the show, yet have kindly
allowed the public to wander through their garden as part of the open day. Their lovingly tendered garden of roses and perennials
is a credit to their hard work and dedication and one not to be missed. Janette Wheeldons’ garden is tucked away and although many have admired her neat little garden at the front of the house, its not until you wander around the back of the house that the real magic is revealed.
Just down the road is the garden of Peter Lowe and Heather Vallance. This garden is an eclectic mix of art, micro climates and hidden surprises. The last garden is that of Terry and Di Mooney that offers something different from the other gardens. This garden has a
Mediterranean style combining art, space and plants with a hidden gallery.
The P&C will be hosting a luncheon to delight your taste buds, which will be served at the High School in the courtyard. Details of the menu will be confirmed at a later date.
