Janine believes less is more and that, by its very nature, good design should tread lightly on the planet. "Great design is not about slavishly following current trends. A beautiful garden nurtures the soul, complements the house it adorns, and contributes to the streetscape."
If you have a yearning to create your own little urban oasis, or just an interest in learning some of Janine's design secrets, come along to the Grove Community Centre for this great workshop.
Copies of Janine's latest book, 'Urban Sanctuary: Designing small gardens' will be available for purchase at a special event price.
