Jerry Coleby-Williams of Gardening Australia fame is no stranger to talking about plants. Gardening since age four, he has a wealth of knowledge on all things horticultural. Not only is he inspiring gardeners to live sustainably with his blog, he is also inviting Gympie gardeners to join him at the Gympie Garden Expo this year on May 2.
Jerry will be discussing organic basics, home orchards and his incredibly popular Q&A session where you can bring along plants, bugs or diseases for identification and doctoring. Please don’t forget to transport them in a well sealed container!
Director of the Seed Saver’s Network, and Patron of Householder’s Options for Protecting the Environment, Jerry founded ‘Bellis’, an award-winning, sustainable house and garden in Brisbane in 2003.
“The garden”, describes Jerry, “is unique in Queensland, and is opened to the public each year. You can follow my website which an inspirational journey of ideas for gardening and living in our ever changing environment.”
Jerry has been a presenter on ABC TV’s ‘Gardening Australia’ show since 2000, and in 2014 joined 4BC Radio as a talkback gardening presenter on their Weekend Breakfast Show.
