The multi-talented, multi-lingual, gardening guru Costa Georgiadis commandeers the What’s Growing On Podcast, and takes us along on his journey of gardening, philosophy and passion.
We had the pleasure of talking with Costa who has a very holistic view on landcare, it’s not just about gardening, it’s about everything.
Costa Georgiadis has been on the long-running national gardening TV show Gardening Australia for 8 years. He’s a landscape architect, an environmental educator and a person who is filled with passion.
Costa’s motivation and drive comes from his belief in the power of gardening to help us connect, to help us learn, and to help us grow. Everything is connected, the plants, the insects, the season, the water, the soil, the climate, the culture.
One of Costa’s favourite words to use was ‘community’.
“The community is what the community is.”
And what the community can be, can be shaped by the actions of an individual; like John, our What’s Growing on Podcast co-host who started a now thriving community garden on his street with a single pallet. Gardening can really bring people together, to share and to learn.
There is so much nuance in the world, and for Costa, landcare is something that can transcend any boundaries. A free-thinker, and inspiring leader, an advocate for the special practice of gardening. Costa believes that it is better to travel well than to arrive, and we feel very lucky that we were able to share a small part of his journey.
