Organic Gardening
Sunday 24 October & Sunday 7 November | 10am – 1pm | $25pp

Organic vegetable gardening is regaining popularity with a resurgence of “growing your own”. The long term ripple effects of this gardening method are infinite for us and our next generation. This half-day workshop will give facts, dispel myths and arm participants with practical approaches to work with the problems as they come up – it is, in the end, all about balance.

Native Garden Design
Sunday 24 October & Sunday 7 November | 1.30pm – 4.30pm | $25pp

Native gardens are low maintenance, provide habitat and food for native species, increase soil fertility, enhance urban canopy cover and urban cooling – all on little or no water. This half-day workshop teaches participants everything they need to know about waterwise landscapes and the importance  of planting species native to Western Australia.
