Ever wondered how people get their succulents looking so good? We have too. It turns out, there’s a knack to styling and growing succulents. Fortunately, Centennial Parklands’ fun new Inside Dig workshop is about to show you the top secrets to help you make your Instagram inspiration a reality.

Starting in September this unique workshop will combine beginners’ tips in a relaxed social setting. As a bonus, there’s plenty of wine, delicious antipasto and great company to be shared while you’re doing it!

What will it cover and why succulents?

 

This great new experience will help you tell your Senecio from your Sedum. According to Yates horticulturalist and Inside Dig teacher, Angie Thomas, “succulents are so versatile and hardy and you can grow them in a range of conditions”.

Think indoor plantings for your coffee table, a stylish corner cluster for your balcony – even a miniature fairy garden for a child – there are so many trends emerging that you will never be short of inspiration. As an added bonus, participants will get to take home their own succulent creation with the knowledge about how to keep it looking great!

Love getting your hands dirty?

 

Did you know there are other ways you can get your hands dirty with the Parklands? We have a volunteer Nursery Growing Group who meet twice a month and contribute around 900 hours per year to propagating plants to sell at our popular seasonal Plant Sale events. Get your green thumbs on one of their plants at the next sale, this Father’s Day weekend.

We also have a Bush Regeneration group who meet regularly to care for and restore the endangered Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub flora in the Parklands. It’s incidental exercise out in the fresh air and right now, we are looking for volunteers. Register today to join in the fun!
