Community Workshops


SGA’s Community Workshops bring people together to learn about gardening sustainably, protecting our natural environment and improving our personal health and wellbeing. Our workshops are designed to be inspiring, grounded in the latest science and best gardening practice and are rich in practical projects and ideas for people to take home to implement in their own homes and gardens.

SGA’s portfolio of workshops covers a wide variety of gardening topics and we continue to develop new workshops to broaden the options to choose from.

SGA is committed to delivering workshops of the highest quality that meet the needs of your community. We will consult with you prior to a workshop to ensure it meets the needs of the audience.

We can also partner with you to develop a new workshop if it is not in our current portfolio.

Who can Engage SGA to Run a Workshop?

SGA can be engaged by any organisation to run an SGA Community Workshop. This can include Local Councils running workshops for residents, community gardens, retirement villages, garden clubs or any other organisation.
