About the Spring Outdoors

Capture the feeling of spring with our annual Spring Outdoors program.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, this year’s program will look and feel a little different but promises to still get you outdoors, enjoying some fresh air and making the most of the warmer weather.

Once again, we’ve partnered with Nillumbik Shire and Banyule City Council to present a range of events to be enjoyed online and in your every own backyards and neighbourhoods.

With educational seminars, gardening sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with each other, learn about our environment and biodiversity, and maybe pick up a few tips for your own gardens.

In addition to events brought to you by Banyule, Nillumbik and Manningham Councils, we’re incorporating the Middle Yarra Spring Outdoors Gardening Series by Sustainable Gardening Australia. In ten webinars, Sustainable Gardening Australia will teach you how to prepare your garden for a wide variety of wildlife.

All events are free. Check out our Spring Outdoors program across all three councils.
