ACT Branch: The Harris Hobbs garden visit

9 March 2017

Thursday 9 March, 4.45 for 5pm

Neil Hobbs who hosted our event at Contour 556 has invited us to the garden he created with his partner Karina Harris.

The Harris Hobbs garden is a constant work in progress.  Over 26 years the garden has been in a state of transformation.  The garden was first opened for the former Open Gardens Australia in 1996, and is unrecognisable from that time.  The garden is an artful blend of exotic and native plants, and is full of sculpture.

Recent changes have added an upper level deck that overlooks the front garden, providing a new sense of the scale of the garden.  As a result of the new outlook the owners have removed some trees and added new plantings to continue to play with the forms and spaces. Refreshments will be served at the end of the evening.

Address:          16 Robe Street, Deakin.  Parking is available along this street or surrounding streets.  Please ensure you don’t block any drive ways!

Cost                 $10 Members, $15 non-members – including refreshments

Bookings         Helen Elliot at (phone 6284 4749 home)
