Event description

Our indigenous animals are struggling the effects of urbanisation and removal of habitat. But with a few simple changes, a garden can become an inviting space for local fauna to visit and live in. Whether you're working in a courtyard or have lawn to spare, you'll walk away from this workshop with a wealth of knowledge that you can put into practice. Emmaline Bowman of STEM Landscape Architecture & Design will walk you through the steps in design a habitat oasis of your own to attract birds, insects, reptiles and mammals. 

Please feel free to bring any surplus produce, seeds, cuttings, plants, gardening magazines etc to swap and share!

Please note that this is an event for Naarm/Melbourne gardeners only. If you live outside this area, please contact your council to find out what free sustainable gardening events are available locally. 

If you have any access or support questions or requirements in order to participate fully (eg. interpreter), please let us know at least two weeks prior to the event and we will be pleased to assist you. Photos will be taken at this event, but there is an option to opt out on the day.
