WA Tree Festival: Living soils and your garden microbiome with Sabrina Hahn

May 2, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


This workshop hosted by the City of Melville will be delivered by Sabrina Hahn, the host of ABC radio’s gardening program Roots and Shoots.  Join Sabrina as she explains how microscopic soil fungi and bacteria play a vital role in delivering water and nutrients to plants. Its like an underground wifi system where plants can talk to each other and share resources during times of stress.

Learn how to encourage soil microbes to flourish and increase their numbers in gutless hydrophobic sand and protect plants from diseases.

Discover compatible gardening products that work with nature rather than against it allowing microscopic organisms to increase a plants potential and maintain health.

Please bring your reusable cup and support us in making this a ‘waste wise’ event.
