Blackwood’s beloved Karkoo Nursery has finally announced their grand opening for their second site in Oakbank!
The second location comes after the local council has discussed selling the original site to redevelop it as part of a $12 million initiative for the area.
There has been an outpour of support from the community to keep Karkoo in its original home in Blackwood, but the nursery is still unsure if they can stay, so they are opening the doors to their second home this Saturday, 1 May.
The new location will see Karkoo planting its roots in the historic Johnston Brewery in the heart of the Adelaide Hills’ Oakbank and bringing the public their same incredible range of plants and even live music on occasion.
“We have been working incredibly hard over the past few weeks to make this stunning state heritage site inspiring and magical and can’t wait for you all to visit,” Karkoo shares on their announcement post.
The new shop will also feature a number classic and more eye-catching pots, alongside an amazing selection of gifts, homewares and garden art and even an on-site barista to get your coffee fix while you shop.
Karkoo will be open from Monday to Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm and Sundays 10:00pm – 5:00pm (From 1 May).
