In this workshop, educator Maria Ciavarella of My Green Garden will lead a presentation on being a successful gardener without spending a lot of money.

Topics covered will include:

  • how to use home-made compost in different ways
  • seedlings from seed and basic seed saving tips
  • striking plants from cuttings
  • DIY organic fertilizers
  • making self-watering pots

Hands-on aspects of the workshop include making seedling pots from old newspapers and preparing cuttings for striking. Participants will also take-home extensive notes from the session.

The Sustainable Communities Workshop Series aims to up-skill City of Whittlesea community members in the art of sustainable, climate-resilient living and community-building.

Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions to be entered into a prize drawing at the series' end. Every workshop participant will also receive a certificate of recognition for their participation and have the opportunity to share their learnings and creations at the celebration showcase in November 2023.
