Keen to transform your garden from the design phase up? Want to do it in a sustainable, ethically minded manner that’s kind to the earth? Then this is the course for you.
Learn how to transform your garden from the design phase through to implementation and maintenance while keeping your carbon footprint to a minimum. Trainer Belinda Kennedy will take you on a hands-on journey into closed loop garden systems. As part of the journey, you will get the opportunity to actively design, implement and maintain areas of the CERES habitat gardens, work with local indigenous plants and learn the importance and know-how of building and maintaining your own soils. There will also be exploration into further training, volunteering and employment opportunities for those wanting to focus on a sustainable career change or pathway.
