It is my experience of creating my own garden from a bare paddock over the last ten years, with summer temperatures often hotter than Adelaide, and six to seven months of frosts (down to minus 5 degrees) that gives me the hands-on experience to run this workshop.

I will use examples from my own garden to showcase how these principles have been used in a harsh environment successfully.

Come along with your notebook and burning questions relating to developing your own garden and I will endeavour to weave in answers as I go.
