Learning Together to Garden Sustainably

SGA Community Workshops are currently being offered as Webinars and can be booked by any organisation interested in helping people garden more sustainability (note: travel costs may apply for face-to-face workshops).  With over 30 topics to choose from, our workshops are designed to be inspiring, grounded in the latest science and best gardening practice and rich in practical projects and ideas for people to take home to implement.

We offer flexible delivery formats, speaker notes, discounts on multiple bookings and a not-for-profit discount.
