Gardens for Wildlife Workshops

Over this series of three workshops at the Craigieburn Library, you will get ideas about attracting native wildlife, and start to develop some designs and project plans for your own wildlife-friendly garden.

Workshop 1 (Thur 12 Aug) Gardens for Wildlife Introduction

  • Understand Hume City's native vegetation and natural values
  • Overview of the Gardens for Wildlife program
  • Apply the wildlife garden recipe to your place
  • Get recent aerial images of your property

Workshop 2 (Thur 19 Aug) Wildlife Habitat Features

  • Consider which indigenous plants best suit your garden
  • Decide what habitat features to include at your place
  • Identify a habitat garden project

Workshop 3 (Thur 26 Aug) Planning your Wildlife Garden

  • Garden design ideas
  • Garden plan, checklists and budget
  • Determine what site preparation is required to be ready to plant next year.

Various resources will be made available over the course of the workshops. Attend all three workshops to go into a lucky draw for one of three small prizes.

In September 2021, all workshop participants will be invited to place an order for free indigenous seedlings to plant in their wildlife-friendly garden. The seedlings will be grown over summer, and ready for planting at your place after June 2022.

As part of the Gardens for Wildlife program, you will also be able to organise a garden visit to your place. During this one hour visit with volunteer Garden Guides, talk through your habitat ideas or aspects of your plans.

This workshop series will be repeated at the Sunbury Library (July) and The Age Library in Broadmeadows (September).

Citizen Science

For a host of reasons, we need to know what plants, animals and fungi live in the area. Citizen science projects rely on everyday people submitting observations. Take some clear photos or sound recordings and simply submit using your mobile phone.

Citizen science can provide the evidence that programs like Gardens for Wildlife do actually help conserve biodiversity.

Install the app and join the Hume City's Wildlife project on iNaturalist.

Visit the Discover Nature in Hume webpage to find out more about the range of citizen science projects you can get involved with.
