Canowindra’s ‘Green Gold’ Celebration


Please join us for the unveiling of the new interpretive panels in the museum’s 
lucerne display, followed by afternoon tea in the grounds of the railway cottage.
When:  Saturday 12th November 2011 at 2 p.m.
Where:  Canowindra Historical Museum
Gaskill Street, Canowindra

The Canowindra Historical Society & Museum Inc. invites members of the community to an afternoon of celebrations to acknowledge the importance of Lucerne to the local area.   Lucerne grown on the Belubula River flats brought early wealth and fame to Canowindra and it was dubbed Canowindra’s ‘Green Gold’.   The afternoon will feature the unveiling of panels of information and pictures related to the local area.   The panels will be placed in a section of the shed that houses the museum’s Lucerne objects.   These panels are an outcome of the Sustainable Collections Project, Central NSW, a joint initiative of Orange, Blayney and Cabonne Councils supported by funding from Arts NSW.   The afternoon activities begin at 2 p.m. with the unveiling of pavers, followed by the Lucerne panels.  Afternoon tea will be served by Society members at approximately 3.15 p.m.   Short oral history presentations will feature throughout afternoon tea by selected people involved in Lucerne production.
