In the free Go Eco Environmental Workshop Series, Michael Heiler from Go Eco will introduce you to a range of gardening and biodiversity concepts and processes. No gardening experience necessary as this is a series for beginners and those interested in how they can help both themselves and the planet!

Workshop 3: The Importance of Biodiversity in the Garden

In this workshop we will talk about the importance of biodiversity for functioning natural systems. We will discuss how we can encourage biodiversity and use it to our benefit. Biodiversity is a lot more than mammal and insect life; it includes microbial and fungal life as well so part of this workshop is on how we can get all these natural elements to do some of the work for us and increase pest and disease resistance. If there is a creature that does a job well it is always best to let that creature do the job as part of its natural way of life rather than having to do it ourselves. So let's work on increasing our biological workforce by enhancing biodiversity.

This programme will be held in-person at Central Library (Auaha Meeting Room). Attendees will be asked to observe the safety measures outlined on our COVID-19 Update page.
