Garden Open Day

On Open Gardens Day, we’re redefining what it means to showcase our green spaces. This event isn’t about picture-perfect gardens; it’s about sharing ideas, celebrating works in progress, and fostering a love for nature.

We need all kinds of local gardens to participate in order to run the event.

Why Participate?

🌱 Embrace Imperfection: Your garden doesn’t have to be flawless or finished to participate. In fact, it is better if it isn’t, we want real life – not false perfection.  Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting out, we welcome gardens at all stages of development.

πŸ¦‹ Focus on Wildlife: We’re passionate about creating gardens that are beneficial to local wildlife. Whether it’s providing food and shelter for birds, butterflies, or bees, every garden can make a difference in supporting our local ecosystem.

🌿 Celebrate Diversity: From established gardens to works in progress, every garden has a story to tell. By opening your garden to the community, you’re sharing inspiration and encouraging others to embark on their own gardening journeys.

What to Expect?

🌻 Inspiration Galore: Explore a variety of gardens and gather ideas for your own green space. From native plantings to creative wildlife habitats, you’ll find endless inspiration to make your garden come alive.

πŸ—£οΈ Community Connection: Connect with fellow garden enthusiasts, share tips and tricks, and forge new friendships within our vibrant community.

How to Get Involved?

🌿 Open Your Garden: Whether big or small, your garden is an invaluable part of our community. Sign up to open your garden and inspire others with your passion for gardening and wildlife.

πŸ‘€ Explore the Gardens: Grab a map and embark on a self-guided tour of the participating gardens. Discover hidden gems and marvel at the beauty of nature in our neighbourhood.

πŸ“’ Spread the Word: Help us spread the word about Open Gardens Day! Share this event with friends, family, and neighbours who share a love for gardening and wildlife. For more information and to sign up your garden, contact Bobbie Sunderland
