There are many scenarios where garden space is minimal including rental properties; apartments with balconies;  townhouses with small courtyards; retirement homes; caravan parks; community garden allotments and many suburban blocks.

This is the second in a series of four workshops to help you make the most of the space you have.  You will learn techniques such as stacking, hanging pots, lattices, using narrow niches and wall and fence spaces, portable grow bags, clever plant choices such as dwarf varieties and low maintenance plants that take up minimum space wth a high yield. 

Design your garden to optimise your space. Join Angela Penn, kitchen garden teacher at Manly West Primary School; and science teacher for this workshop at Manly Vale Community Garden.

Future workshops in our small space garden series are as follows:

October 12 at Manly Vale Community Garden with Angela Penn, kitchen-garden teacher + science teacher

November 9 at Kimbriki EcoHouse and Garden with ecologist, Peter Rutherford
