Workshop topics include growing your own herbs and vegies

RESIDENTS have been invited to learn how to grow their own herbs and vegetables and a range of DIY tips at Bunnings workshops in April.

Bunnings Warehouse area manager Kent Payne said the April DIY workshops would help local residents gain home DIY inspiration and gardening tips.

"April is an ideal time to plant hearty winter vegetables to harvest in the approaching cooler months and the Grow Your Own Workshops will take Fraser Coast residents through the planting, growing and harvesting stages," he said. 

Mr Payne said as well as the Grow Your Own Workshops, residents could learn a range of helpful tips and advice on outdoor decking, gardening, tiling and plastering during April.

He said free Kids DIY Workshops would also run each weekend throughout April, with a range of Anzac and Easter-themed activities to ensure lots of fun for the kids.
