Sustainable Gardening Australia/Werribee Open Range Zoo Sustainable Gardening Workshops February 2011

Sustainable Gardening Australia, in partnership with the Werribee Zoo,
is proud to announce a series of four sustainable gardening workshops,
a feature event of the 2011 Sustainable Living Festival.

Starting on Sunday 6th February, and running each Sunday until the end of
the month, these workshops have a Werribee Plains focus and are designed
to encourage participants to become more sustainable within their own
backyards and local community.

Each workshop will focus on a different topic, including Creating Habitat
Gardens, Sustainable Garden Design, Locally Native Plants and Gardening in
Low Rainfall Areas.

Mary Trigger, CEO of SGA, explains “With sustainability and the importance
of looking after our environment becoming more widely understood and
accepted, celebrating sustainable gardening through a series of workshops
like this is a really wonderful way to show people what can be achieved in
their own backyards”.

“The four workshops we will be presenting for the series are all quite varied,
but they certainly showcase sustainability and will give both novice and
experienced gardeners some real information and inspiration” Ms. Trigger
said.

The SGA/Werribee Zoo workshop series is a partnership between
Sustainable Gardening Australia and the Werribee Zoo, and all monies raised
through ticket sales goes directly to the maintenance of the gardens,
enclosures and animals at the Werribee Zoo.

The 2010 sessions were incredibly popular and sold out early, so participants
are encouraged to purchase their tickets now to avoid disappointment. As a
feature event of the 2011 Sustainable Living Festival, this is a workshop
series not to be missed.
