Greener Spaces Better Places has launched School of Thumb, a new horticultural video series that shows a group of plant experts helping everyday Australians solve their gardening guesswork.
Funded through the Hort Innovation Nursery Fund, using the Nursery marketing levy, School of Thumb sets to equip people with simple gardening skills and knowledge to build and grow green spaces across Australia.
The first series is set in Western Australia (WA), focussing on tackling common gardening questions from three locals, covering: growing in hot conditions, increasing your veggie yield, and how to grow a sustainable garden from scratch.
What’s in it for growers?
School of Thumb is designed to help solve Australia’s gardening guesswork. The series aims to educate and inspire everyday Australians on greenlife, providing facts and techniques to help grow better from home.
The series is also helpful for growers themselves – the producers and sellers of plants – who are encouraged to review the resources and use them in their nurseries, communications, marketing, and content strategies. Housed on the Greener Spaces Better Places’ website and Instagram, the series is designed to be easy to share so we can spread the word and get Australia growing!
Following the WA series, School of Thumb is set to visit Australia’s east coast states next.
