  • Richard Rowe delivered a habitat gardening workshop for us at Newport Lakes. The presentation was detailed and professional, and delivered with clarity, warmth and passion. Our participants really appreciated understanding all the steps they could take to support biodiversity in their own backyards. Sustainable Gardening Australia is an important source of independent advice for home gardeners. I regard their work highly and regularly recommend their resources to our residents. –

  •  SGA were engaged to run a series of Sustainable Gardening Workshops for the Casey community. A good working relationship was quickly established with Richard Rowe, who presented the workshops. Richard’s enthusiasm and passion shone through at all times. His presentations were engaging and packed with great information and tips. They were high quality and value for money.

  • I greatly enjoy engaging Sustainable Gardening Australia for community workshops when I can, as I know that their presentations are always of high quality and presented in an engaging manner. I have received nothing but high praise as feedback from patrons who have attended SGA programs at my library. Richard and Nicole are a delight to work with and extremely accommodating of working with the needs and requirements of local government and community organisations.

  • Richard presented a wonderful talk to our residents as part of our Spring Floral Festival in September 2018. His detailed presentation and recipes for Habitat Gardens assisted us to learn how to create habitat gardens and help preserve local wildlife at the village. Improving soil by adding organic matter that will stimulate the soil to invite different creatures into your garden. Learning also that you don’t need to have a big garden to create habitats. It is something that can be easily achieved in residents’ homes…. Our residents were very motivated by the end of the presentation. We want to see those butterflies, birds and frogs visiting us at the village soon. Thank you Richard for stimulating our minds and guiding us as to what we can do to create local wildlife corridors.
