SURROUNDED by chooks and produce, horticulturist Jennifer Stackhouse will talk about her new book, The Contented Chook, in the Krackatinni garden this weekend.
Krackatinni, which features in the book, is a small, intensely-planted garden brimming with herbs, fruit, vegetables, ornamental plantings – and chooks.
A quirky coop in a quiet corner, created by owners Karel Vine and Anne-Louise Dampney, shows what can be done with old dog kennels, bird cages and fences.
Krackatinni, named for the owner’s fondness for a cold beer at the end of a hard day’s work in the garden, is a living sanctuary combining productivity with simple beauty.
Teas will be available and proceeds from the opening will go to charity.
Details: 3 Azalea Court, Glenmore Park, Saturday, June 23, 10am-4.30pm, and Sunday, June 24, 10am-1pm. Admission $7.
