HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS: An open garden at Jindera this weekend will help support the work of The Murray Valley Sanctuary Refugee Group.

Rain has brought a bloom to the robinias flourishing in a gorgeous garden at Jindera ahead of a special event on Sunday, October 15.

Leanne Wheaton and Gordon Shaw will throw open the gates to their property Coorong, at 173 Hawthorn Rd, for an open garden to support the work of The Murray Valley Sanctuary Refugee Group.

The welcome rain during the past few days has ensured the garden is in fine form for the fundraiser that will include a garden tour, entertainment by Rutherglen group Wine, Women and Song, as well as gourmet food and goodies for sale.

The family’s own Grass Roots Beef will be on the barbecue along with delicious sourdough rolls from the Bicycle Baker. 

There will be plenty of space to sit, enjoy the sunshine and admire the eclectic garden which features established old trees, dry stone walls, recycled artwork and a running creek.
