Living with Your Wild Neighbours: What's Ripping Up My Garden?

Encouraging wildlife to your garden & have a great veggie garden too. Strategies to live with wildlife.

Maintaining a veggie patch, no matter how big or small, can be a challenge - especially where there are lots of friendly wild neighbours - bandicoots, wallabies, brush-turkeys & other birds ... even feral deer. While most of us enjoy daily observations & interactions with the native wildlife, they can cause mayhem if they get into your veggie plot.

Get to know these animals better - their behavior, why they are in your garden - and look at ways to mitigate their impacts. Lots of opportunity for questions & discussion. Also take a short wildlife walk to see some of the common birds and wildlife of Crystal Waters.   

Presenter: Tom Nealson
Tom is an wildlife manager, environmental scientist and wildlife research assistant. He conducts wildlife surveys and has worked for many years as a wildlife ranger. He lives at Crystal Waters and is often found helping people with wildlife.  He is also well known around these parts for his music and for organising live music events.

This workshop follows the monthly Crystal Waters Market (8-1pm)
Live music, organic produce, bread, cakes, honey, seedlings, and much more. Family friendly.
