Healthy Soil, Healthy Planet: Garden Soil in Climate Action


Come along to this free event where you will learn simple ways to improve the soil in your garden and reduce your carbon footprint. This face-to-face workshop at the Joy of the Earth Community Garden will introduce you to the science of soil and regenerative gardening, and provide tips on how to protect and improve the soil in an environmentally beneficial way, working with natural cycles, rather than against them. Teresa Day, a home gardener and an expert trainer from Sustainable Gardening Australia, will deliver the workshop.

Topics covered:

  • The role of a gardener in climate action
  • What is soil, how is it made, and why is it important
  • Different types of soil, and their physical and chemical properties
  • Introduction to the Soil-Food-Web (soil microbes, fungi and soil biodiversity)
  • Regenerative Gardening, what it is and how it works
  • Soil carbon – why it is so important
  • How healthy soil will help you, your garden and the wider environment to adapt to climate change.

This is a free environmental event organised by Frankston City Council.
