Free Sustainable Gardening Workshops

Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga are hosting a series of FREE 'sustainable gardening' workshops.

There are three topics in the series, each offered at two alternate times on weekend afternoons, with limited places available for each session. Register to attend as many, or as few, of the topics as you like.

1. Get growing sustainably

What is sustainable gardening; explore various tools to help you to develop the first (or next) steps for your garden

Sat 21st June OR Sun 22nd June, both 1:30pm - 4:30pm

2. Soils

Understanding & improving your soil, including soil tests, organic methods & compost

Sat 12th July OR Sun 13th July, both 1:30pm - 4:30pm

3. Propagation, saving seed & surviving summers

Ways to extend your garden, share with others and prepare for summer

Sat 11th October OR Sun 12th October, both 2pm - 5pm 

Venue: National Environment Centre, Thurgoona

The workshops will look at 'sustainable' gardening from a range of perspectives and provide tools you can choose from for use in your own garden (or not - afterall, there's no single way to garden that suits everyone!).

The sessions are designed to accomodate all-comers - whether just starting out or a seasoned gardener - and are an opportunity for participants to share local experience.

There's some more information on the flyer below (click the image to view as a PDF online) and the events are also listed on the Ecoportal.net.au calendar.
