The LifeStyle Channel's garden design guru Brendan Moar is facing his biggest challenge yet. To create a stunning eco-friendly show garden for Armidale's Sustainable Living Expo or SLEX as it’s known. With just three weeks, no budget and his dad looking over his shoulder it’s all going to be uphill from here. With a small army of volunteers made up of Green Core
enthusiasts, work for the dole crew, generous tradies who just want to be involved, plus the local Rotary, including his dad Jim, Brendan is determined to create something spectacular for his home town.
Accustomed to working with generous budgets in the tens of thousands, this project relies on the generosity of local businesses for materials and the enthusiasm of his volunteer crew to craft a garden that will cover a circular area in the middle of the showground which is 14 metres in diameter (about twice the size of the larger gardens at London’s Chelsea Flower Show). Armidale will have never seen anything like it and LifeStyle's cameras are there to capture every setback and every triumph. With its true life drama, volunteer spirit and we trust, happy ending, it will be the perfect LifeStyle Christmas special.
