 An initiative of Lakeside Drive Community Garden, The Mulch Pit and AWEganic Gardens

 About the workshops:

Each workshop will include in-depth theory & discussions with practical demonstrations. The information presented in the workshops is totally top end centric and climactically appropriate. Handouts containing detailed information and illustrations will be provided for each participant. The workshops will be held at Lakeside Drive Community Garden and The Mulch Pit at Nightcliff Uniting Church.

Each workshop is separate, and participants can choose which workshop(s) they would like to attend. However the workshops also run as a series and participants can attend as many workshops as they like.

Dates, topics & locations:

The workshops will be run on Saturdays & Sundays from 28th September to 26th October. They will run from 3pm to 6pm, with an afternoon tea included. Please arrive at 2.45pm so that we can meet and greet and sort out payments before the 3pm start.
