Registrations are open to book your place in Council's free Native Garden Workshop at Floribunda Community Centre, 1 Floribunda Avenue, Glenmore Park between 10 am-1pm on Sunday 18 March.

Council has joined forces with Sustainable Education Australia to bring this workshop to the residents of Penrith.

Penrith Mayor John Thain is excited by what residents could learn about biodiversity and gardening by attending the workshop.

"The workshop will show how to plant a variety of native flora in your garden to provide the perfect habitat for a variety of insects, birds and other small animals," Cr Thain said.

"The right food and shelter creates an ecological balance for our native birds, animals and insects.

"There are many benefits to bringing biodiversity back to your garden."

Bees are natural pollinators, frogs stop pests like cockroaches from entering our homes while trees provide us with shade in the summer and hold the soil together to help keep our waterways clean.

Bookings are essential as places are limited. Register now via the Native Garden Workshop Registration page.
