Water Wise Gardening and Biodiversity in Your Yard or Verge
Water wise and Biodiversity in your own back yard, front yard or verge strip.
Water Wise Gardens that Increase Biodiversity. Would you like to have the sort of garden that uses less water and increases the number of native animals around your home? This workshop will teach you how!
During this workshop Shani from Ecoburbia and special guests will show you how to create a water wise garden and share ways to increase biodiversity, wildlife habitat and reduce the urban heat effect. We will cover in detail how to plant native species, and help you plan a verge garden that meets the City of South Perth guidelines. Ways of encouraging wildlife will also be discussed with a demonstration of how to make an insect hotel. Issues such as storm water and bush fire preparedness will also be discussed.
Once you have participated in this workshop you will have everything you need to know to create your own little piece of bushland.
Supported by City of South Perth, sustainability educators Shani Graham and Tim Darby will deliver over this autumn and winter series of community sustainability education workshops with a focus on water and energy conservation, household waste reduction, smart travelling, food production at home, biodiversity enhancement and other sustainability aspects.
