A small-time public garden is bringing big cost-saving tips to Wagga this winter.

ErinEarth assistant manager Tina de Jong said this season’s open garden on Saturday would focus heat and energy conservation to keep bills down in colder months.

It comes as the city last week experienced a five-degree day – its coldest temperature for the year.

As residents begin to rely on electric and gas heaters for comfort, Alan Cotterill intends to demonstrate tricks of the trade and ways to keep the finances in check. 

He said simple DIY home adjustments saved more than half his previous winter bills.

Ms de Jong said the open day gave families something to fill their Saturday with, providing gardening and even bee-keeping inspiration, tours and talks from 9.30am to 1pm on April 22.
