Your host, Sydney Community College is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Living in the urban sprawl of Sydney and lack the space for a lush green garden in your home? In these Sydney classes, you can learn how to garden in a small space and create your own compact green area!

This course is perfect for beginners and home gardeners competing for space, as you will learn how to plan and create your own urban garden by adapting to your environment, pushing boundaries and getting creative with your plants.

The workshop will begin with an outline of garden design basics (light, soil, water, space and plant types) and then brainstorming different ways to use three-dimensional space and designing gardens to suit different maintenance capabilities. 

You will discuss what gardens suit the needs of different gardeners, different garden types, indoor plant options and working with fruit and vegetables. You will also learn easy ways to propagate new plants and how to plan for garden rotations and soil development through composting.

By the end of the class, you will know how to garden, all the basic needs of flora, and the fundamentals of garden design planning and how to go beyond these to utilise small spaces.


Please note: This class requires a minimum number of students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform and fully refund you, so please watch your email/SMS 1 day prior to the class

Marianne Cannon began studying Horticulture Certificate III at Ryde Tafe in 1995.
I don’t know how I managed because I was teaching Television Production full time at North Sydney Tafe too!

I went on to study the Diploma of Horticulture, which I completed with Distinction in 2002.
From the time of the Sydney Olympics, I worked as a freelance technical director/technical producer for various TV networks and at Yates Consumer Advice.

In 2006, I was lucky enough to get a contract with Better Homes and Gardens TV for one year, researching the gardening segment with presenter Graham Ross.

I have my own gardening radio show and have been broadcasting as Real World Gardener on radio 2RRR 88.5fm in Sydney, since September 2009. The program is now syndicated to 25 radio stations around Australia via the Community Radio Network.

Working as an Education Officer at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens for 9 years, I wanted to provide a show with an educational focus. The idea of using segments, came about from my broadcast experience and horticultural background.

Real World Gardener is a gardening show with a twist with many segments covering all aspects of gardening and horticulture. Segments include, garden design, plant doctor, herbs and spices, permaculture, wildlife in focus, -about Australian birds, growing your own, favourite plants, and gardening tools. All segments are with co-presenters who are representatives in their field of expertise.

I have a large garden that is stuffed full of a huge variety of plants but also includes a veggie garden and a chicken coop with 3 Bantam chickens.

I look forward to leading a workshop on Small Space Gardening and passing on all sorts of interesting gardening information.
