Get your own personal Garden Coach working with you to move your self-sufficiency up to the next level.

Expert in designing and creating food-producing gardens, inspirational Garden Coach Lachlan Storrie has a dream: a world where fresh organic food abounds in our backyards, parks and playgrounds.  True food security.

On Saturday mornings from April 2013 you are invited to be part of a small group learning practical skills that will transform the way you approach your backyard, balcony or pot plant.

Lachlan Storrie, owner of Tree Frog Permaculture, has been designing, creating and teaching about productive food gardens of all sizes for many years.  Now he is leading intimate coaching sessions at the new Mandalong Demonstration Garden so you can learn how to get more from your own garden.

Just an hour North of Sydney, half an hour South of Newcastle and en route to the Hunter Valley wineries the Mandalong Demonstration Garden makes a perfect Saturday morning stop-off.  Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see a productive food garden in its early stages of design and construction and quiz the designer himself!

Groups will be small and each Saturday morning will cover different topics, depending on the needs and interests of the participants:

  • No dig gardens

  • Raising plants from seeds and cuttings

  • No-weed gardens

  • Self-watering gardens

  • Using poultry and animals to provide food and save you work

  • Creating diversity and resilience

  • Creating a place of beauty and peace in your environment

  • Developing a healthy, fresh food supply

  • Using perennials to reduce your annual workload and increase sustainability

  • Planting natives for food and to save you work

  • Creating habitat for insects and frogs, your personal pest managers

  • Designing your garden to suit your conditions

  • Composting, worm farming and mulch

  • And much, much more.

Bring your curiosity and questions and leave inspired.

Everyone is warmly welcome and as with any EveryVoiceCounts event you can be sure that our teacher will be inspirational, dedicated, highly experienced and expert at what our Yolngu colleagues call both-ways learning.  All EveryVoiceCounts teachers respect the wisdom of their participants and encourage community sharing and support.

Grow Your Green Thumbs workshops are designed for people ready to make progress in their garden so book ahead, places are strictly limited.

Everyone loves working with Lachlan
