Greening our yards The Urban Heat Island is a phenomenon becoming more common in Sydney’s Western Suburbs making soaring summer temperatures feel even hotter.

So how can we make our cities cooler? The answer is in greening our yards, planting appropriate trees and gardens to help lessen the impact of high temperatures and reduce cooling costs.

This presentation shows you how to plant native trees and shrubs to create a green paradise at home. Using native endemic species, you can learn how to plant a natural garden, water garden, cottage garden, formal garden or potted garden.

You’ll also learn how to locate and plant your veggie patch for maximum harvest.

This is FREE for Blacktown residents and places are limited so booking is essential. Book online (https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/greening-our-yards-may-2018-tickets-44211664278)

Due to the high interest, please cancel your ticket if you are unable to attend, or email ourenvironment@blacktown.nsw.gov.au or call 9839 6055, so we can offer your place to someone else on our waitlist.
