LOCAL nursery and hardware stores have been inundated recently with many people spending their isolation time gardening. But without proper soil preparation or the correct sun to shade ratio, a lot of money can be wasted on seeds and seedlings that were never given the chance to thrive.
PICAL can help solve your gardening frustrations with some expert advice and a free introductory horticulture short course beginning in May. New tutor Rick Coleman has over 30 years of permaculture design and teaching experience. Internationally recognised, Rick has worked as an educator and consultant for a range of organisations both locally and overseas, including RMIT, World Vision Australia and Community Aid Abroad (Oxfam).
