Costa Georgiadis is a landscape architect, environmental educator and television presenter who has an all-consuming passion for plants and people. He knows how to bring out the best in each and takes great pleasure in bringing them together.
As co-creator and host of Costa’s Garden Odyssey for SBS, he caught the attention of a nation. Since 2013, Costa has continued his journey as the much-loved host of one of the ABC’s most iconic and Logie award-winning programs, Gardening Australia. His presenting work with Gardening Australia has been acknowledged with a Silver Logie.
In recent years, Costa has also joined with Dirtgirl in sharing environmental lessons in Get Grubby TV and Get Grubby The Musical, much to the delight of Australia’s pre-schoolers. He is also a popular guest in a range of television programs including Black Comedy, Have You Been Paying Attention?, Celebrity Name Game, Hughesy We Have A Problem and was recently featured in a dedicated episode of Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery.
Costa is also involved with regenerative agriculture and holistic practices that deal with the issues arising from a rapidly urbanising world. Through his workshops, lectures, keynotes, expos and other events, Costa is actively involved in delivering his message to the broader community. His work with pre-schools, primary and high schools, TAFE colleges and universities, industry groups and community organisations reflects his ability to convey his knowledge of a permanent self-sustaining culture to any audience.
2020 sees Costa continue with Gardening Australia and proudly support Junior Landcare in a national ambassadorial role.
