Event Description

FOOTPATH GARDENING with Jerry Coleby-Williams

"To boldly garden where no one has gardened before"

Would you like to put some nature in that nature strip?

 Gardening in public open space is a social service, reduces crime and vandalism as well as improving  neighbourliness.

Investment studies reveal sought-after properties tend to be in streets lined with shade trees and gardens, and that homes with well-tended gardens sell for around 10% more.

This session explores the various trials, tribulations and happy surprises of footpath gardening as well as the economic, social and environmental benefits it brings to property owners and local communities.

(Different Councils allow different types of Footpath Gardening - please check with your local Council before doing anything.)

For further enquiries, please phone (07) 3325 3492
