Green your Verge with Claire Greenhill
Many of us have vacant space on our verges that are ripe for turning into productive green space that is good for you and the environment you live in.
In this class, Claire Greenhill will teach you how to prepare (organically), design and plant out a garden using edibles and Australian plants with a focus on endemic species to the Fremantle area.
Verges are generally not irrigated so this class will focus on species that are hardy, water-wise and grow well in sandy soil. We'll talk about which plants to choose to attract different birds into your garden and how to have flowering plants throughout the year, plus the right time to plant these beautiful specimens.
This class will cover some of the local schemes from the City of Fremantle and surrounding councils, that you can get involved with to help you out in the process of converting your space.
Date and time:
Saturday 25th of April, 10:00am - 11:00am
Saturday 30th of May, 10:00am - 11:00am
