Join Graham Brookman of the Food Forest and Malcolm Haines of Ligaya Garden for some heat proofing top tips for small-to-medium-scale growers.

As our climate gets hotter and drier we need to start getting clever to ensure we can still enjoy productive gardens all year round. As recently seen on Gardening Australia, Malcolm and his family have achieved a lot of abundance on a very small block and he will share some of his best methods for getting your small garden ready for the summer onslaught. Graham and Annemarie Brookman have been creating abundance on their 15 hectare permaculture property for nearly 40 years now , and Graham will share his heat proofing insights including use of organic fertiliser, compost, mulch, shade, irrigation and water quality, microclimates, ponds, companion planting, crop varieties and more, both in theory and demonstration on a twilight garden/orchard walk.
