Your Masterclass

As part of the South Australian Nature Festival, we are delighted to host Sophie Thomson's masterclass on "Creating greener, cooler, more liveable gardens".

As our climate becomes hotter and harsher, every garden can make a difference, helping to mitigate the Urban Heat Island Effect. In this masterclass we look at how you can transform your garden into a cool and liveable oasis, which looks great and also provides food security for your household and habitat for wildlife.
