Event: Wild Wild Inner West: Wattle we do about your garden?, Sydney

If you’re a millennial living in Sydney, chances are you may not have a lot of experience in gardening. Growing up in the city and being busy with school and work might not really leave a lot of time to get your hands dirty in the backyard. However, if you want to expand beyond succulents, a workshop designed for you is coming this weekend.

Wild Wild Inner West: Wattle we do about your garden? is a workshop for young people of Inner West and City of Sydney aged 18 to 35, where you can learn about local native plants of the bushland that can fit right into home gardens. Limited gardening space, which often comes with living in this city, is not an issue either – the workshop will focus on species that thrive in pots and containers as well as backyards and balconies.

The instructors – Rosie King and Alex Birker, who boast 4+ years’ experience in horticulture and ecology – will also teach you how to care and maintain your plants, create potting mix, and deal with noxious weeds.

With just $5 fee, you can take home all the relevant knowledge AND a few native plants for you to grow right away. For booking and more information, visit the Eventbrite page.
