LO­CAL land­scape designer Mar­garet Matthews will hold a Na­tive Gar­den De­sign Work­shop for the Mur­doch branch of the WA Wild­flower So­ci­ety this month.

Dr Matthews, a bi­ol­o­gist and mem­ber of the so­ci­ety and Friends of Wire­less Hill, has loved gar­den­ing since child­hood, car­ing for her first gar­den be­fore she even started school.

“I had my first gar­den when I was four-years-old and have been in love with plants ever since,” the for­mer re­search sci­en­tist said. “As a bi­olo

gist I have learned about

the in­ter­ac­tions in ecosys­tems and be­lieve we can help to nur­ture

the nat­u­ral world and nur­ture our­selves at the same

time.” The event will be held 10am-3pm on Satur­day, May 23 at Cock­burn Wet­lands Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre, Hope

Road, Bi­bra Lake. The cost is $40, or $30 for so­ci­ety mem­bers, and limited bookings can be made by email­ing wild­flow­ers@oze­mail.com.au or call so­ci­ety HQ on 9383 7979, Tues­days and Thurs­days 10am-2.30pm.

A banksia and ev­er­last­ings in Mar­garet Matthews’ gar­den.
