Costa is a landscape architect with a passion for sustainable living. In SBS’s words:
>Costa’s Garden Odyssey is a groundbreaking magazine style series that allows this unique Greek Garden Guru an opportunity to do what he does best – spread his green wisdom while communicating with people and celebrating cultures and community in a way never seen before on Australian television.
>Costa’s Garden Odyssey shows us how to tread lightly – embracing nature’s cycles and seasons, investigating and championing our local produce from it’s source, and illustrating that in gardens, plants aren’t the only things that grow… people do to.
>Costa will take you to the joyous, harmonious heart of the garden. It’s about gardening the soil and the soul.

– Northey Street City Farm community garden in Brisbane’s CBD
– fixing a major stormwater problem under a house
– watermelon growing and the Chinchilla Watermelon Festival
– planting a kitchen garden (and celebrating with a lamb on a spit)
