Cranbury welcomes back one of their own for Canowindra Open Garden on Saturday October 10.

Catriona Glanvill nee McDonald was born at Belmont,garden number 1,and has fond memories of growing up in the Canowindra area.

Catriona Glanville has a Bachelor Degree in Landscape Architecture from University of NSW 1988 and a Certificate of Horticulture from Ryde TAFE 1990.

Catriona is a local girl, educated through Canowindra Preschool, Public School and the High School.

Raised on a property, Catriona has experienced firsthand the difficulties of gardening away from soft reliable water, on difficult soils and at the mercy of drought.

Presently married to a farmer in the Grenfell district where she is a partner in a broad acre farming business, raising her own family and creating a garden as well, Catriona brings a perspective shaped by experience and practicality to her work as a designer and plantswoman/horticulturalist.

Many of Catriona's clients have opened their gardens for the old Open Garden Scheme and the Milthorpe Ramble.

Her gardens have also been featured in the Central West Lifestyle Magazine and one particular garden, a permaculture garden/organic farm at Forbes won the 2014 Capstone Recruitment Environmental Award.

Catriona will talk about the basics of garden design and her approach to it,allowing time for a Q & A session at the end. She hopes you can join her at the Cranbury Hall.

The Cranbury area is as pretty as a picture this time of year, with the canola just holding its yellow flower and the wheat still green, the gardens are an added bonus. Please see add for more info.
