Get excited and get ready to learn some brilliant edible gardening tips n' tricks in this LIVE session with Perth's Casey Lister. Casey runs the very excellent Pinch Dash Glug (www.caseyjoylister.com). Check her out on insta @pinch_dash_glug Her impressive BEFORE and AFTER garden pictures are so inspiring.

More about Casey: Casey Lister is a gardener and recipe developer who lives in a little cottage with a sprawling backyard. Five years ago she began transforming her backyard from a bed of dry couch grass into a rambling food forest, filled with fruit trees, vegetables, herbs and flowers. This experience taught her just what power we all have to shape our local ecosystem and to provide a safe haven for the birds, insects and other animals that share our gardens with us. Casey has a PhD in Psychology and is passionate about the garden’s capacity for mental and physical healing. She has written two cookbooks about seasonal cooking to encourage others to try growing - and cooking - with the seasons. Her favourite part about gardening is being able to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with others. Note: Local time in Perth, WA will be 1:30pm
