See below for a list of events, some of which I am involved in and some that I just recommend. They are in approximate date order.
3CR, Melbourne’s oldest Community Radio, is at 855 on the AM dial. Every Sunday morning, from 7.30am to 9.15am it broadcasts nearly two hours of interesting gardening information hosted by Pam Vardy with a panel of experts. She takes talk back callers and also has an outside line answered by a gardening expert, for those you don’t want to speak on air. I take part in the show on the third Sunday of every month so please ring in for a chat or to ask a question. If you have not yet listened to a show or miss one you can download the podcast from the 3CR website
I am on air again on June 16th, July 21st
Dig It the gardening radio show on Geelong City Community Radio ‘The Pulse’ is at 94.7 FM
Follow the seasons on Geelong’s only live to air gardening program, hear about what to grow in your area, raise chooks, plant trees, prune bonsai, get involved in community gardens or send in your horticulture questions to our expert panel. Gardening tips, hints and plain good old fashioned advice from 10am to 11am every Saturday morning. If you don’t live in Geelong you can listen on the web, go to The Pulse 94.7 website

According to the Friends of Burnley website, Open Day this year promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a wonderful array of expert, informative and entertaining presenters: lecturers, demonstrators and work-shop leaders, and question-answerers. Click on the heading to go to the Friends website and download the program for the day.
I am conducting a Walkshop on Herbs and natural pest control from 10.30 to 11.30. It is a lecture followed by a walk in the herb garden. Cost is $10. Other workshops and lectures include a green roof lecture and tour; pruning everything from roses to fruit trees, as well as espalier; a forum with Michele Adler; Millie Ross, Carolyn Blackman and Graham Morrison to answer your gardening questions; Creating living woven sculptures with willow by John Rayner; and there are lots of activities for children. Many of the lectures and tours are free but there are charges for most of the workshops. Make sure you book early because there are limited places in each workshop.
Sunday 14 July 2013, 10am to 3.30pm
