The Inside Dig, in partnership with Yates Garden Company is an innovative new workshop series that aims to share expertise and insights on gardening in a relaxed and friendly setting – with a range of gardening experts discussing hands-on techniques over a complimentary glass of wine.
The Inside Dig workshops will be held monthly and each session will incorporate a different theme or gardening topic based on the season from leading horticulturalists. The workshops will be conducted by Angie Thomas and feature experts from the Garden.
Angie Thomas is the horticultural communications manager for Yates and has a wealth of gardening knowledge, writing growing guides for the Yates the garden company, in addition to talking at garden shows and events and being a guest speaker at garden club meetings. Angie has been at Yates for 18 years, starting off in the research and development and regulatory affairs team before moving into the communications role. Angie lives on the south western outskirts of Sydney with her husband, two young boys and six chickens (!) and is passionate about all things gardening. She particularly loves tending her vegie patch and involving her kids in growing and harvesting their own food.
The first workshop will explore the topic of ‘Growing Summer Veggies' with a focus on growing your own delicious vegetables and herbs and discussion about how to get the best out of your plants through soil types, planting techniques, fertilising and more. It will include a tour of the Gardens lead by one of our Horticulturalists and lunch as well as a tailored Yates ‘starter pack’ to take home.
