Did you know that a cleverly designed garden can help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter? In this free workshop Actsmart’s Ren Webb will explain how to create a garden that’s a place to relax, a place to grow produce and encourage biodiversity, and a place that helps keep your home comfortable in every season.

Topics covered include:

  • The Canberra climate
  • The creation of microclimates
  • The sun’s path in summer and winter
  • What shading can contribute to cooling in summer
  • The use of deciduous plants to create shade in summer and sun in winter
