A GREAT DAY IN THE COUNTRY

The Open Garden of 14-15 October at Mulligatawny Farm was a wonderful event. Just over 700 people visited over the two days (with a few coming to the group day on Friday): the weather was sparkling and holding the event a few weeks later meant that the gardens were greener, the roses and waterlilies were in full bloom and the trees heavier with leaf.

None of this would have been possible without the generosity of Michael Hogan, whose vision is responsible for the gardens, and his partner, Mervyn Joseph. It is no small thing to open up your personal space to the public, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

We also acknowledge generous sponsorship from Joseph’s Incorporated Attorneys, and MPR Hiring. Thanks to our food and drink partners, Fournos and Vondeling Wines: you did us proud.
