Beyond Gardens @ Margaretta Wilson Centre
Mar 28 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Beyond Gardens @ Margaretta Wilson Centre | Collie | Western Australia | Australia

The Beyond Gardens team are bringing their entertaining and informative workshop to Collie for on Tuesday, March 28.

Some will remember with pleasure their visit two years ago.

The free workshop is packed with tips for waterwise gardening, responsible use of fertilisers, and advice on soil conditioning.

There is no hidden agenda to sell anything or push merchandise, just a sharing of gardening wisdom encapsulated in topics such as “Does your lawn have a drinking problem?”

The team members are happy to take questions and provide solutions to gardening problems, saying they will tell you the things other gardening programmes don’t.

The workshop runs from 4pm to 6pm at the Margaretta Wilson Centre, and light refreshments will be served.

Don’t miss out, register your interest either with Tidy Towns chair Nola Green on 0431 643 176 (a text message will suffice) or go to the Beyond Gardens website.
