Meet the gurus of gardening at the Beerwah Library Garden Expo

Local Government Week provides lots of opportunities for residents to chat to Caloundra City Council staff and councillors. The Beerwah Library Garden Expo at Beerwah Community Hall tomorrow (Friday 19th May) will be officially opened by Cr Anna Grosskreutz and Council's Pest Management Officer, Greg Brown, will talk about "Weeds - Welcome to my Nightmare". Council staff will be available from 9.30am - 1.30pm to discuss gardening matters ranging from water, weeds, and what to grow where, to Council's vision for the future in its Corporate Plan.

The Expo, organised by Beerwah Library as part of Caloundra City Libraries' Sea Change program, will be held at Beerwah Community Hall. Take the opportunity to swap your 'weeds-for-trees'. Bring two shopping bags of weeds from your garden to receive one tree, or a garbage bag of weeds for two trees.

The community can find out all that is great about local government during Caloundra City Council's annual Local Government Week celebrations 15-21 May. Contact the customer service centre on (07) 5420 8200 or by tapping into .
