Each month, an experienced facilitator will present on sustainable living and gardening topics such as zero waste, worm farms, keeping backyard chickens, natural soil management, responsible weed control, composting and sustainable garden design.

The June workshop, to be run by Buzz and Dig, will provide an introduction of local bees and how to create a bee friendly garden to increase pollination for your backyard flowers, fruit and vegetables. Particular topics will include great bee friendly flowers, making a bee hotel with participants, buzz pollination, how to ID a bee, and how to encourage them to stay in your garden.

The speakers at previous meetings included: Ian Culbard on permaculture design for your own garden; Felicity Gordon on keeping chickens; and Chezhan Hall with Zero Waste (getting you ready for the Plastic Free July challenge).
