Tiny space? It's enough for an edible garden

A workshop will equip Sunshine Coast residents with the knowledge to create a small edible garden that packs a punch in containers, on the balcony, or even the kitchen window.

Tiny space? It's enough for an edible garden

If you have a courtyard, balcony or kitchen window, this is your chance to create an edible garden on a budget with know-how from a local expert.

Sunshine Coast gardening guru and presenter Anne Gibson of The Micro Gardener will host a fun filled workshop to teach anyone how to design a low cost, small space food garden with fresh ingredients. 

As part of the Living Lab @ The MET series of workshops, Anne will inspire, guide and equip you with all the skills and knowledge you need before a tasty kitchen garden morning tea.

Participants will learn about the rapidly growing trend of micro gardening, with design ideas and techniques perfect for balconies, courtyards and medium density apartment living.
