Gardening for Sustainable Living

Join ABC’s Gardening Australia presenter, the knowledgeable and passionate Jerry Coleby-Williams for this exciting and inspiring event.

Enjoy Jerry’s illustrated presentation on the development of his abundant organic garden Bellis in Wynnum, transformed from a denuded patch to a fertile paradise boasting over 100 productive species. His house is not only solar-powered but is also maintained by solar-powered equipment. Rain and storm water are harvested, sewage and grey water are recycled – all on a standard Brisbane suburban block.

And in addition to Jerry’s talk, you will visit two of Townsville’s best organic gardens to observe first-hand the results.

Venue for presentation: School House Cafe, Tumbetum Lodge, Townsville Palmetum.17 july 9am to 4pm
