Gardening tips from Costa at special appearances tomorrow

IF you live on the Northern Rivers and have a green thumb - or wish you did - tomorrow's going to be a special day for you. 

As part of The Northern Star's ongoing seeds giveaway, we're giving you the chance to meet the people's green thumb, Costa Georgiadis from ABC's Gardening Australia.

Known for his holistic approach to gardening and his knowledge of all things Mother Nature, Costa will be appearing at three different local newsagents throughout the day where he will give a talk on the benefits of home growing your own food and the bets type of plants to grow on our Northern Rivers region. You'll also have the opportunity to ask Costa your own gardening questions. Come on down and meet a true gardening guru in the flesh!

Costa will appear at three stores tomorrow, Tuesday, September 23:

  • Scotts News, Molesworth Street, Lismore, 9am - 10am
  • Ballina Newsagency, 11am - 12pm
  • Murwillumbah Newsagency, 1.30pm - 2.30pm

The first 50 people at each session will receive a free packet of seeds from the Farmer's Choice Organics Foundation
