Urban Gardens:

Creating Corridors of Habitat

Gardeners play an important role in creating corridors for wildlife in urban areas. More than ever, people’s backyards and small council parks will be vital bolt holes for many species to breed, feed and play. Even the smallest space can offer something back to nature and help bring biodiversity back into city spaces.

Join master gardener, horticultural expert, radio presenter and writer, Sabrina Hahn as she shares her passion for the creation of sustainable environments in our cities. The green spaces in urban areas play a vital role in returning biodiversity into cities and improving people’s physical and mental well-being. Sabrina has a scientific background in horticulture, soil science, entomology and botany. She also leads mediterranean garden tours, works with Indigenous communities in the Kimberley to create kitchen and bush food gardens, and has been awarded life membership of the Nursery and Garden Industry of Western Australia and nominated for Australian of the Year.
