Beautiful gardens in a city is one thing. Actually getting to see and experience them is another. If you’re like me, whenever I wander in a city and see what looks like a gorgeous garden hidden behind walls and gates, I admit – I sometimes peek. I just want to see what it looks like and to imagine, for a moment, that I get to enjoy it (Charleston, SC is a great place to do that).
Open Gardens Australia works with 10,000 private gardens to open them out for public enjoyment. Working to promote the development of gardens and greater appreciation of gardens, the organization works with all types of private gardens, from urban courtyards to country estates, all across Australia.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
