CDU garden collection opens for public viewing 


Charles Darwin University’s Horticulture and Aquaculture Group is opening its facility to the public as part of the National Open Garden Scheme on the Anzac Day long weekend.

The event will take place over two days, showcasing the group’s “living plant collection”.

Visitors also will be able to view student projects on display, and to attend information sessions.

The National Open Garden Scheme is a non-profit organisation that began in Victoria in 1987. The scheme’s aim is to promote the knowledge and pleasure of gardens and gardening across Australia.

Each season the scheme opens around 650 private gardens to the public.

This is the first time CDU’s Horticulture and Aquaculture Group has participated in the scheme and the group expects large numbers of visitors due to the holiday long weekend.

The event will take place on Saturday April 26 and Sunday April 27 at Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus.
