If you like reading knitting and gardening books, why not come to Parramatta City Library. This month the library has The knitted garden exhibition on which is borrowed from Griffith Regional Art Gallery.
The Knitted Garden was created by the Griffith Natty Knitters, a group of enthusiastic, if not highly skilled, knitters and crocheters. It’s a completed garden including a vibrant flower garden, a healthy veggie patch, a water feature, deck chair in a lush grassy resting area, garden tools, hungry insects, birds, both native and feral animals and other miscellanea. A bear’s house, complete with a teddy bears picnic is the latest addition – AND – it’s all knitted!
The library also had a knitters group in to demostrate some knitting skills.
A gardening talk – Spring into spring: gardening DIY, is scheduled on Wednesday 18, July from 10:30 -11:30 am at the library. Toni Salter, a horticulturalist, writer and talk-back radio show guest, is coming to talk about favourite flowers of spring, winter preparation for best spring display (pruning, fertilising, 3 top tips for composting), and seeds to sow for a bumper vegetable harvest and more. Booking on 9806 5159.
Coming to Parramatta Library and to see this wonderful and inspiring exhibition and also join us on the talk.
