GNOME WORLD: Kazcare will soon be home to a communty of gnomes. Manager Deborah Knoke and Peter Kazacos hold up the first few donations for their Gnome Farm that will be an ongoing fundraiser for Your Angel.THE Highlands has an array of tulips once a year, a big Robertson spud and a soon to be gnome community all year round.
Kazcare Education Facility is calling for unwanted unloved gnomes of every variety for their future gnome farm attraction, which is an initiative to raise funds for the Kazcare resident charity, Your Angel, and to bring something a little different to the region.
The idea came up when Kazcare volunteer Kay Gibbins reminisced about gnomes she remembered from childhood and mentioned it to manager Deborah Knoke.
Owners Peter and Vicki Kazacos then got on board and the idea developed from there.
Mr Kazacos said the plan was to have that little bit more for families to enjoy when they come to Bowral Country Indulgence markets each month at Kazcare.
Apart from the regular stalls, children will be able to explore the 10-acre property, seek out the shyer gnomes in bushes and admire the others fishing by the small creek, playing cricket together, boating and more.
“Life is so serious, you’ve only got to look at the news or newspaper, especially with all the floods recently up in Queensland,” Mrs Knoke said.
“And there are not many gardens that haven’t seen a gnome or two. They’re fun little character figures, for the young and old.”
While gnomes have their own place in folklore history they now have their own little tale to tell about their journey to Kazcare.
Mrs Knoke said the first family to move into the facility woke up one day in a recycling centre after their owners had chucked them out.
But “daddy gnome” knew of a place that would help them, Wingecarribee Support Services. And the rest, they say, is history.
“We’ll have a gnome community,” Mrs Knoke said.
“We’ll them together in little scenes (boating, fishing, learning etc).”
As part of the future plan for the gnome farm, there will also be gnome painting for children, stalls and different scenes set up each month so it’s not a “seen it once, don’t need to see it again” scenario.
There is a collection point at Kazcare for unwanted unloved Gnomes to begin the community and Kazcare are calling for donations.
“It’s creating something the whole family can enjoy,” Mr Kazacos said.
