L’Arche Open Gardens 2017
today… MONDAY, 23 OCTOBER
9.30 am – 12.30 pm
Your chance to visit three gorgeous gardens in Hunters Hill with two of them open to the public for the very first time. Book here.
All funds received go to L’Arche Sydney, a ground-breaking charity helping the disabled to live in households in the community.
All three gardens are within walking distance of each other… visit the gardens in any order – but why not start at Viret Street with a cool drink, check out the beautiful Ivy Alley plant stall in Passy Lane, explore the jewellry in Wybalena and end with morning tea in the beautiful grounds of 7 Clifton Rd.
L’Arche Sydney grew from a core group of members who built friendships with people with an intellectual disability and their families. In January 1980, the group began meeting for regular picnic outings. A number of those in the first “picnic group” were people who were living at a large institution in Gladesville, Sydney.
L’Arche Sydney, which celebrated it’s 30th anniversary during 2013, has grown to be a vibrant community of friends, supporting and living the life of community together whilst adhering to the charter of L’Arche.
