The autumn 2020 Rose Garden Open Weekend is April 18 and 19, 2020, from the hours of 12 noon to 4 pm each day. Entry is free.
The Peaceful Land of Joy is opened to the community on these days so everyone can enjoy and experience the peaceful gardens in their full colour and bloom. Volunteers and resident gardeners have worked all year round to cultivate and maintain the gardens for the benefit of others.
The Rose Garden Open Day’s weekend with free entry is a way to highlight the ongoing effort to support the community.
During the weekend, Devonshire teas, with the aroma of freshly-baked scones, are available in the temple café.
For those who wish to venture further, there are free garden tours and a taste of meditation sessions, temple tours and a second-hand bookstall covering many titles and categories; all reasonably priced. The Enjoyment Shop is open all weekend.
The Society’s founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, who
was born in Tibet, developed these gardens as one of his countless ways
of repaying the kindness of Australian people for the opportunity to live in this country, and receive the support and shelter of Australia over many years.
Volunteer gardeners have worked all year round for many years
to cultivate and maintain these delightful gardens. It features:
• Thousands of trees and so many colourful flowers – roses, salvias, marigolds, satin hibiscus and more.
• Free entry to the gardens is offered on the Rose Garden Open Days as part of the Society’s ongoing community support.
• Freshly-baked home-made scones soup and cake in the temple courtyard café – reasonable prices.
• Free tours of the gardens and temple, and guided meditations.
• The delightful Enjoyment Shop will be open.
• A second-hand bookstall with thousands of titles covering many categories – all reasonably priced.
