Workshops and events

Local Gardening Workshops Hosted here in Nelson

We host a range of workshops throughout the year and are looking to collaborate with guest speakers at our venue.

Since 2019, we have presented on the following topics; rain water harvesting, edible landscapes, food foraging, composting at home, setting your garden up for spring, wreath making and flower arranging.

We have also presented at the Home and Garden show in Nelson and deliver part of the Nelson City Council's Rethink Waste Programme teaching people how to compost their kitchen and garden waste and how to best use compost in the garden.

To find out when these are on, please subscribe to our mailing list or follow us on social media for regular updates.

If you would like to speak at one of the events, host an event at Tim's Garden or have a relevant theme you would like to share with us then please email an expression of interest to us detailing your proposal and outline of the content to
