Ziebell’s Farmhouse Open Gardenby Robert Wuchatsch
The historic Ziebell’s Farmhouse Garden was included in Australia’s Open Garden Scheme for the first time last year. The Garden was open from 10 am to 4.30 pm on both Sat. 17 and Sun. 18 November. This event was a resounding success, with 270 visitors, most of whom had never been to Ziebell’s Farmhouse before. There are plans for this to become a regular event. The next Open Garden Australia weekend at Ziebell’s will be held on Sat. 16 and Sun. 17 November 2013.
Ziebell’s Farmhouse (c. 1850-51) is Victoria’s oldest German immigrant building. It is located at 100 Gardenia Rd, Thomastown, (Melway 8 H5) and is open on the second Sunday of each month, from 1.00 – 4.00 pm.
