Sophie Thomson is heading back to Kangaroo Island October 23-26th to deliver the next series of garden talks to support fire affected gardeners. Her ‘Summer Proofing your Garden’ talks will cover the basics of waterwise gardening and give gardeners tips on how to get their gardens to survive summer, especially when establishing new plants. 

Events are free and designed for gardeners affected by bushfires and those supporting their garden recovery, however as COVID restrictions have eased we are able to open these talks up to all gardeners on the Island.
