Get back to grassroots with Ipswich Libraries Sustainable Turfculture info session

Gear up to get rid of the weeds in your lawn with Ipswich Libraries’ Learn for Life – Sustainable Turfculture information session with horticulturalist and botanist Jerry Coleby-Williams.

Mr Coleby-Williams is a writer and director of Seed Savers’ Networks Inc, presenter for ABC TV’s Gardening Australia and will use his green thumb expertise to teach you how to engineer a better ecosystem within your garden.

Learn for Life – Sustainable Turfculture will also equip residents with information on how to become master sustainable gardeners and how turf can be valuable to your garden.

Community, Culture, Arts and Sport Committee Chair Councillor Andrew Fechner said the Ipswich Libraries Learn for Life session is not to be missed.

“Council is delighted to offer opportunities for Ipswich residents to explore interesting ideas and topics, and this Learn for Life – Sustainable Turfculture information session promises to do just that by delving into sustainable gardening, turf cultivation, and backyard ecosystems,” Cr Fechner said.

“Many people – including me – see turf simply as grass that needs occasional mowing but this morning with Gardening Australia horticulturist Jerry Coleby-Williams aims to open our eyes to this living, breathing organism.

“You’ll never see your lawn the same again after this free information session.”

The Learn for Life – Sustainable Turfculture information session will be held on Saturday 4 December from 10am to 11.30am at North Ipswich Reserve Corporate Centre.
