Australians living in urban environments are amongst the world’s most active ‘backyard’ gardeners but the impact of these gardens reaches far beyond the garden fence. In reality, our gardens are intrinsically linked with the health and welfare of the natural Australian environment, be it urban forests, coastal wetlands, public parklands or our unique rural landscapes and national parks.
In addition to a growing awareness of urban habitat and water management, home gardeners are also keen to grow their own fresh, healthy produce and connect with their community to share and swap food, seeds and experience.
Your community needs your support to access the information they need to become more sustainable in their lifestyles. SGA can help you to do this.
Since 2003 we have worked in partnership with local government in developing a range of community workshops and publications that are practical, well researched and inspiring.
