Council launches online gardening workshops

Four online Green Living Workshops have been launched by Central Coast Council, giving people skills in how to take care of their garden and Live Green.

Kicking off in honour of the end of this week’s National Organic Week, the Council will hold its first two workshops on Saturday September 12, from 9.30am-11 am, via a link on its website.

This year’s workshop series will be delivered in two formats, allowing people with differing time commitments to learn how to Live Green.

There will be one-hour lunchtime workshops on weekdays, and longer workshops on weekends or evenings.

The four topics covered during September are composting, worm farming, sustainable eating, and propagating your herb garden.

Council’s Acting Director Connected Communities, Phil Cantillon, said the new format for the workshops means even more Coast residents can learn how to live sustainably.

“Our Green Living workshops can benefit anyone, whether they live in a house with a large backyard or in a unit,” Cantillon said.

Mayor Lisa Matthews praised Central Coast residents for their ongoing commitment to reducing waste and living in a sustainable way.

“We can all do little things which not only are healthier and greener, but also reduce our personal costs and benefit the environment around us,” Cr Matthews said.
