A special series of Beyond Gardens events proudly supported by the Water Corporation and the Town of Cambridge. Our aim is to highlight Waterwise gardening techniques that are specifically suited to WA's unique combinations of soils and climatic conditions.
Seminars are full of humour as the Beyond Gardens Team highlight unsustainable gardening practices and dispel many gardening myths, replacing them with practical techniques that result in success at a fraction of the current cost and use of resources.
