Come and join us for a hands-on community workshop to understand ways to create a waterwise, climate resilient garden.

The City is hosting a family-friendly Waterwise Verge and Garden Workshop to show what is really involved in creating a sustainable waterwise garden. As a fusion of entertainment and environmental education, this fast-paced and engaging ‘performance’ sees The Forever Project narrate the installation of a sustainable garden showcasing the latest waterwise and wastewise features.

The Forever Project team will transform an existing garden bed to a dynamic living landscape full of local flora species and habitat for wildlife. The waterwise garden installation happens literally from the ground up, followed by a question and answer session.

Come and learn options for improving your soil with simple techniques and amendments, the best way to add new native plants to your garden, waterwise information, weed management and be inspired to kick off your own waterwise gardening project. This initiative is proudly co-funded by Water Corporation’s Waterwise Greening Scheme and forms part of our ambition for Subiaco to be a leading waterwise city.

Registrations are essential as places are limited. Please remember to bring gloves, trowel, drink bottle and a hat. This workshop will have a photographer in attendance that will produce photos that may be used for promotional purposes.
