Establishing a Native Garden

House and Garden

There are four basic steps to establishing a native garden.
They are: PLAN, PREPARE, PLANT and PROTECT. The workshop will cover these steps, using the Mahoe Reserve, as an example, and will include a short visit to this nearby native planting area.

Our presenters:
Fiona Waghorn is an experienced horticulturalist, who has run her own nursery for 10 years. Fiona now manages the Living Streams Community Nursery Trust which grows eco-sourced native plants;

Dr Sue Jarvis was the foundation Chair of the Lincoln Envirotown Trust and was a driving force behind the establishment of the Mahoe Reserve on Boundary Road, and the Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens.

A gold coin donation to support the activities of the Gardens will be appreciated.
