Description

This event is for young people aged 18-35 in the Inner West and City of Sydney LGAs.

Have you ever wanted to know more about what grows in our Sydney bushland or how to grow native species in your garden? Join Rosie King and Alex Birker for a workshop on native gardens.

Rosie has a Diploma in Conservation and Land Management and has worked in bush regeneration for private ecological companies all around Sydney for the last 4 years. She is now a Senior Aboriginal ranger in the Illawarra.

Alex is a professional gardener with more than 9 years industry experience for the last 8 years he has been running a flourishing garden maintenance business in the Inner West. He is currently studying a Diploma of Horticulture at Ryde School of Horticulture.

About the workshop:
There are an amazing and highly adaptable range of local Sydney natives that can fit right into our home gardens. The challenge is often working out which plants will best suit your spaces. No matter the style, size, water requirements and wildlife attracting qualities you are after there are plants for you. Even when you’re renting there is a way to incorporate them into your life. At this workshop, we will talk about the importance of native species in our bushland and how we can select the best native plants for use in our gardens in the Inner West. This workshop will focus on species which will thrive in pots and containers and that suit smaller backyards, balcony’s and small spaces.

You’ll even get to take some native plants home with you to put right into your home.
