Open Garden in Braidwood: Sculpture among the Vegetables
92 Monkittee Street, Braidwood, NSW, 2622, Australia
25th November 2017 to 26th November 2017
For the The Braidwood Open Garden Scheme they are opening their micro market garden to the public to showcase the garden practices of Intensive polyculture with poultry on less than an acre using techniques that can be scaled to any size market garden or small farm operation. As a special treat they have sculpture by local artist and carbon farmer Victoria Royds nestled among vegetables. A slow food cafe will operate serving snacks made from their home grown produce. Wynlen House is a small mixed farm growing vegetables, table poultry and eggs using techniques suited to Australia's cool climate zones. They grow without herbicides or pesticides. Come and see for yourself how it works and what can be grown all year around in such a small space and scaled up to larger spaces if you have them. Short tours with the principal gardener, Bronwyn Richards, are available for an additional AUD2 per person. The Braidwood Open Garden Scheme raises funds for the Braidwood Pre-school. Each year prominent formal and interesting gardens in the Braidwood (a heritage listed town) and surrounds are opened to the public so people can enjoy a range of classic and contemporary formal and informal gardens.
