TINO CARNEVALE

 

This year`s Gardening Expert with demonstrations and talks through the day is Tino Carnevale.

Born and bred in Tasmania, Tino’s lifelong interest in plants and gardening stems from growing up on his family’s small vineyard and olive grove in Southern Tasmania.

He studied landscape design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and has an Associate Diploma in Horticulture. As well as being a presenter on Gardening Australia, Tino writes for newspapers, magazines and gardening websites and is frequently heard on ABC radio giving gardening advice

He has worked with the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens developing the Patch and helping to ensure it continues to provide fresh produce to Second bite, a charity organization that collects and redistributes food to those that need it.

He spent four years working as part of The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program, teaching students at Moonah Primary School and continues to teach gardening skills to both adults and children through local garden clubs and school appearances.

He is involved in working with many community groups such as Veterans Affairs, refugee groups and disability services. Tino is a patron of the Tasmanian Weed Society, an organization that raises awareness of environmental weeds and their impact. He is active in community programs and events and gives regular talks to gardening groups around Australia. He is the recipient of the 2011 Anita Boucher Young Achievers Award presented by the Horticultural Media Association.
