Green Gardeners of the Future

A morning with Ruud Kleinpaste


12th October, 9am & 11am - $10 Per Person

60 Minutes with 30 min optional breakout sessions.  


Join us at Southern Woods with guest speaker Ruud 'The Bugman' Kleinpaste.


Ruud's talk on Green Gardeners of the Future and How to Kill your Plants more Slowly will cover everything from the importance of backyard biodiversity, controlling pests in practical ways (or maybe just leaving them...), how nature looks after itself and how important it is to encourage the next generation of gardeners to get their hands dirty.

After the talk, you're welcome to stay behind for one of three breakout sessions.


  • A guided garden walk with Ruud,
  • A nursery and site tour with Devin, our Project Coordinator   
  • A demo on how to care for perennials and common garden plants with Chris, our Plant Centre Manager.


Plus, we'll have barista coffee available (half price with a keep-cup) and a great selection of spring stock in the plant centre to bring the birds and bees into your garden.
