Workshop description

Join Pete Olds, Project Founder of Verge Garden Projects Australia, for a Talk, Presentation and Q&A session about reclaiming your verge and transforming it from grass to garden. Pete will talk about the essentials and basics for those curious or keen to grow native vegetation or herbaceous greens on their otherwise underutilised piece of nature strip aka verge.

Pete's approaches advocates utilising methods which encourages native biodiversity, urban greening and building a sense of community.

This session will cover:

  • background information on what your local verge policy is and how you can find it.
  • local native plant selection for your soil type, best time to plant, methods to remove existing lawns, how to survive without reticulation
  • examples from Perth residents and will put you in contact with a group of other keen verge garden enthusiasts of over 2,000 people across Australia, New Zealand and beyond via the Facebook Group
