Outdoor activities
Tomato and fruit fly control Gardening workshop – delivered by Community Greening in the Friendship Garden at Auburn Centre for Community.

This workshop will cover subjects like selecting Tomato and fruit fly control. There are 200 species of fruit fly in Australia but one, the Queensland Fruit fly, is the scourge of home gardeners and fruit growers. In this workshop, learn about the life cycle of the fruit fly, attracting the males and females and other techniques to exclude the maggots from spoiling your fruit.

Tomatoes are one of the most popular fruits grown in the home garden. (Yes, they are technically a fruit as they contain seeds). In this session, you will get some tips and tricks on selecting and growing tomatoes plus saving heirloom seed to ensure on-going supply of your favourite tomatoes.
