Event description

The humble backyard garden brings us many benefits; it’s a place to relax, a place to grow your own fruit and veggies and can help to encourage biodiversity in the area. Did you know that a cleverly designed garden can also help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter?

Find out how with ACTSmart’s Ren Webb.

In this free workshop you’ll learn about:

The Canberra climate

The creation of microclimates

The sun’s path summer and winter

What shading can contribute to cooling in summer

The use of deciduous plantings, shade in summer, sun in winter

Planting to take advantage of summer breezes

Planting to shelter from winter winds
