Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 March 2018

This year the conference again offers invaluable practical workshops including ten classes by leading international experts plus eleven by popular Australians. In an exciting highlight, much loved previous ALC speaker and world authority Ed Snodgrass provides two roof garden workshops, which include access to the marvellous Burnley Roof Garden. A man of great charm, Ed’s nursery was the first in the USA to focus on green roof plants and he brings huge experience in roofing systems, soil mixes, designs, climates, etc.


Claire Takacs is now back from Europe having been recently described by Noel Kingsbury as, the world’s leading garden photographer. We all know the value of stunning photographs and how critical they can be to illuminate, excite and sell a garden and its creator!


Native gardening expert and media personality, Angus Stewart, also features, along with tropical garden luminary Arno King. Both are accomplished horticulturists, educators and authors who will bring a lifetime of knowledge and experience to share with students.


You may choose from a range of 90 minute design and horticultural workshops from 14 presenters, plus half day workshops by Noel Kingsbury. Small, informal, interactive groups offer genuine learning experiences and the chance to personally engage with the presenters. This is a very rare opportunity to meet and learn from leading international and Australian experts.
