Small Space Gardening

Small Space Gardening

Transform your balcony, courtyard, patio or windowsill into a hugely productive small space garden.

Pot plants on a balcony

Feel that you are missing out on growing your own veggies and herbs due to lack of space? By using containers, pots and vertical space you can transform a balcony, courtyard, patio or windowsill into a hugely productive small space garden.

In this hands-on workshop you will learn:

  • How to maximise your small space to create an abundant oasis of food, herbs and ornamentals
  • Container gardening techniques and principles



Meet your trainer

Donna Livermore is an educator, biologist, permaculture and gardening teacher, and community activator.

She is passionate about living a life of good health, sustainable abundance and with a strong connection to the environment and local community. Donna has an on-going commitment to school education through her work in sustainability and biodiversity education.

With chickens, worms and a productive food garden in the front yard of her tiny suburban block, Donna is reimagining what it means to live a good life in the city and shares this with others in her local community and through her Instagram page @AGoodLifeintheCityandTown.
