Verge Garden Basics - Improve Your Patch
Verge gardening has the potential to transform our cities and streets creating cooler, walkable streets with habitat and biodiversity.
But there are pitfalls for the unwary - too often resulting in disputes between neighbours or between the public and councils.
This free course on resident-planted and maintained nature strip gardens distills the lessons I have learned the hard way over 5 years into 5 easy steps.
For many residents, it will take you from not knowing where to start (or why to start) to being a proud and confident verge gardener who understands how their garden plays a part in the overall greening of our cities.
For professionals in many fields, it will take you on a journey exploring how to encourage residents to convert from grass to biodiverse native gardens supporting council-planted street trees to make our suburbs more sustainable.
Collaboration - Change the World
How do we scale verge gardening from a niche activity for individual gardeners to a mainstream activity that will help transform our cities?
This is an ongoing community for change-makers who want to bring more widespread change to their communities. It develops the idea of using nature strip planting as a core activity to create diverse collaborations to create environmental, social, and economic change in their community.
Available only to those who have completed the Basics course.
