Vertical Wall Garden Workshop
SATURDAY 19 SEP 2020 | 5:30PM - 7PM
This event is brought to you by Darwin Community Arts and COOLmob's Sustainable House Day 2020.
Graeme Gillespie will share his experience building and growing a vertical garden wall (in photo) at his Brinkin home over the last twenty two months. All of the materials he used were re-purposed including the old pool fencing frame and a few hundred collected 3L milk containers he re-used as pots. He installed irrigation on a timer and considered how to minimise water usage. The wall features a variety of plants including ferns, pitcher plants, sedges, orchids, bromeliads, anything he could get his hands on.
If you have a small courtyard area or an ugly wall that you wish to green and transform, come along and be inspired. In this workshop Graeme will:
- show footage of his home vertical wall garden
- share how he made his garden wall and the lessons he learnt
- brainstorm the different materials and ways you could construct your own garden wall depending upon the materials and space available
- help Darwin Community Arts to start building our own vertical garden wall in our community courtyard garden.
