Thrifty Ways to Recycle & Reuse Items in the Garden
The Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre in Carlton Victoria is a 139-year-old building that has been transformed into a creative, learning and community space. The building houses training rooms, a recording studio, meeting rooms, computer lab, cafe, activity spaces and has free Wi-Fi. Once a state school, it has since been restored retaining his original exterior architecture.

On Saturday 30th June 2018, for two hours from 12:30 pm, the library is holding a workshop in thrifty garden techniques and ideas. This event is in a series of workshops designed to show people how to get most out of their gardening, whether they are a novice or an established green thumb. You do not have to spend a fortune to have a great looking garden. Many items already in your home can be recycled and reused to make your garden not only economical, but a 'stand out' from your neighbours. Items such as cardboard, egg cartons, compost made from food scraps, newspaper, old boots and/or shoes instead of gardening pots can enhance a sustainable garden and lifestyle.
This event is free, however, bookings are essential. The Kathleen Syme Library is situated at 251 Faraday Street Carlton. For more information telephone 03 9658 7300.
