Garden Habitat Heroes

Unveiling Garden Habitat Heroes Workshop: a journey into creating a wildlife haven in your garden


In an endeavour to foster biodiversity and community engagement, the Garden Habitat Heroes workshop is set to bloom at the Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens on Saturday, March 23rd, from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm.

This is the first of four Garden Habitat Heroes workshops to be held this year by Richmond Landcare, thanks to funding from the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal Strengthening Rural Communities Program.

This immersive workshop invites participants on an educational voyage to transform their yards into thriving habitats for native flora and fauna. From learning the secrets of habitat creation to crafting a native bee hotel for your garden, attendees will embark on a hands-on journey to amplify biodiversity in their own backyards, with a focus on how to encourage solitary and stingless bees to thrive in your garden.

The presenters will have books, including children’s books, available for purchase. There will be observation hives, sugar-bag honey tasting, hands-on displays and lots of time to ask questions to deepen your knowledge of our stingless and solitary bees, as well as habitat creation in general.

A guided stroll through the lush botanic gardens will round off the event, offering firsthand insights into the elements that constitute an ideal habitat. Participants will have the unique opportunity to witness biodiversity in action, igniting inspiration for their own garden endeavours.

Morning tea will be provided, offering participants a chance to mingle and exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. However, with limited spaces available, early bookings are essential to secure a spot in this transformative workshop. Register here:

Open to individuals of all ages, this event welcomes families to partake in the adventure of habitat creation. For safety reasons, children are kindly requested to be accompanied by an adult throughout the workshop.

Join us at the Garden Habitat Heroes workshop for a morning of discovery, connection, and ecological stewardship. Let’s embark on a journey to cultivate thriving habitats, one garden at a time.
