We are delighted to announce that Costa Georgiadis, the very popular host of ABC Gardening Australia, will be visiting the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens on Saturday 6th September. He will be giving a talk at 12.30pm in our organic vegie garden about Holistic Gardening, including organics, growing our own food, permaculture, the importance of a healthy soil, composting and worms, and there will be an opportunity for questions afterwards. After his talk he will join us for lunch in the Crystal Castle’s Lotus Café.

Costa is a Landscape Architect and an Environmental Educator, who has an all-consuming passion for plants and people, and believes in embracing and celebrating mother nature's cycles and seasons and nurturing her balance, beauty and bounty organically. His holistic approach is all about gardening the soil and the soul.

In his own words: “I really want to drive the importance that for everything we do we’ve got to ask one simple question: is my action building and supporting life or not? Am I eating food that’s going to make me more alive or am I eating processed dead food that’s been transported across the world using a lot of energy and then been infused with all sorts of chemicals to preserve it so that it supports an industry that’s very destructive? It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got six small pots, six square meters or 60 square metres, you can provide health changing nourishment for your body and soul by growing your own simple salad greens that are pretty much bullet proof.

Come and join us for this not-to-be-missed event!
