Introduction to Habitat Gardening

Our indigenous animals are struggling with the effects of urbanisation, and the removal of habitat but with a few simple changes, a garden can become an inviting space for local fauna to visit and live in. Learn how to become a ‘Champion for Wildlife’ with Teresa Day from Sustainable Gardening Australia. In this online workshop you will learn how to incorporate food sources, water, shelter and nesting places in your garden for our indigenous animals.

Teresa Day is the Learning and Training Manager for Sustainable Gardening Australia, a passionate advocate for sustainable design, community development and environmental education, Teresa is a home gardener, chicken keeper and forager keen to show how sustainable choices and lifestyle changes can be implemented in your home.
