What size garden do you have? (approximately)

Keep your cool this summer with trees and vines

It’s about to heat up!!

Join Very Edible Gardens to discover how you can use trees and vines to help cool your home this summer.

With a little garden design, you can save big bucks on house cooling and even assist with heating in winter, while turning your backyard into a shady cool oasis. We think about sun, shade, wind and how to fight the urban heat island effect.

Please note that this is an event for Naarm/Melbourne gardeners only. If you live outside this area, please contact your council to find out what free sustainable gardening events are available locally.

If you have any access or support requirements in order to participate fully (eg. interpreter), please let us know at least two weeks prior to the event and we will be pleased to assist you.

This My Smart Garden event is proudly presented by City of Stonnington on the Country of the Wurundjeri, Bunerong and Boon Wurung peoples of the Kulin nation. My Smart Garden pays our respect to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledges that First Nations peoples have cared for Country sustainably for tens of thousands of years.
