Register for the Backyard Resilience Workshop

This Backyard Resilience workshop is for anyone who has a backyard.

Whether it’s a courtyard or a rambling section, you’ll go home ready create an edible and biodiverse haven.
Take inspiration from examples in the Botanic Gardens and then work alongside two Landscape Architects to create a bespoke plan for your space.
No gardening experience is necessary.
All proceeds from this workshop will go back into The Green Lab’s community greening projects.

Time: 1pm – 4pm
Where: Toi Auaha, 5 Worcester Boulevard, Christchurch Central City, Christchurch 8013
Cost: $80 per household. Booking essential.  Please keep reading for booking details.
 With Landscape Architects Bridget Allen and Anna O’Sullivan, this workshop will focus on creating edible landscapes, increasing biodiversity and choosing the right plants based on soil type and location; you will then put your ideas into action as we guide you through the process of garden design.
You will be asked to supply us with the address of your garden at the booking stage; we will print off a plan view of your property, accessed from the public domain, Canterbury Maps. (Your address information will not be held).
You will take away inspiration, a custom design for you to action in your own backyard and a list of go-to organisations and projects for you to seek out and continue your learning.
