Over the last 10,000 years Victoria’s relatively dry climate in composition with Indigenous land management activities have resulted in a unique array of plant species. Many of these native plants are well-suited to home gardens and some are drought-tolerant, deer-resistant, and edible. Participants will gain a better understanding of how gardening with native plants can help maintain local biodiversity, including the wildlife that depends on our native flora.  This workshop will also give an overview of to turn underutilized lawn spaces to wildflower meadows.
