Bellis: the garden of Jerry Coleby-Williams
Wynnum

Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 May 2013
(No bookings required)

A rare opportunity to visit the award-winning garden of ABC Gardening Australia presenter Jerry Coleby-Williams.

Jerry's great depth of knowledge and passion for sustainability are the key ingredients to this inspiring garden's success, with good soil preparation ensuring bounteous seasonal organic crops.

A Queensland Government experiment, the house is solar-powered, rainwater is harvested for drinking, and all waste water is recycled for food growing. Even the lawn is sustainable - it's mown using a solar-powered lawnmower!

Address: 56 Daisy St, Wynnum
Open: 10am-4.30pm. $8.00, no charge for children under 18

Kathryn Tranter lives nearby and has offered for members to drop in, have a cuppa & biccie and check out her garden.

The address has been sent out through the Garden Visit group email. You need to be a member to receive the email. If you haven't received the address please contact me by PM or phone 0414 445 581.
