Love garden talk? Join us for an opportunity to learn more about the heritage garden created by Margo and Gerald Lewers on Sunday 17 September 11- 3pm at Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.
The garden is based on Margo’s interest in Asian art and design, evident in the series of connected outdoor rooms planted with wisteria, bamboo magnolia and azaleas. Under-plantings of perennials, a central vegetable garden and artwork complement both the garden and home.
Originally a farmyard and orchard transformed by Margo – planting most of the trees herself – today the garden is maintained in accordance with the Landscape Conservation Management Plan. Join Heritage garden expert, Shane Roberts and curator, Dr Shirley Darbon for a stroll around the garden and informative talk.
