Feel that you are missing out on growing your own veggies and herbs due to lack of space? By using containers, pots and vertical space you can transform a balcony, courtyard, patio or windowsill into a hugely productive garden.

In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to maximise your small space to create an abundant oasis of food, herbs and ornamentals.


Clare Harvey is a horticulturist and permaculturist drawing her knowledge from studies of urban horticulture at Burnley (Melbourne University), permaculture design courses and a range of experience within the field. She has worked on farms and permaculture projects across the world, currently setting down roots in Melbourne by running a small market garden in Alphington and free ranging within the field. Clare is passionate about gardening and its power to enact positive change within the world.
