Workshop Description

There is no waste in nature. We can apply this thinking in a beautiful sustainable garden.

The earths resources are limited and so much time and energy has  already been invested making all the things that are at the end of their first life, but it doesn’t need to end there. Be inspired to reuse waste materials in your garden to help the environment and make your garden beautiful, functional and productive on a budget.
