On Sunday past North Bendigo Landcare Group conducted a comprehensive tour of local native gardens and nursery’s. Gardens styles ranged from a compact urban design, with ingenious use of space; to a spacious lifestyle property, with sensitive integration of historic relics. Other gardens included an inventive and resourceful work in progress at Huntly, and a home located on the Box Ironbark verge, with Eremophila’s as a stand out feature.
Both native plant nurseries visited were innovative and informative, with a wide range of plants available for sale.
The boutique Huntly Shopping Centre native plant demonstration area visited at Huntly is an apt allegory for the North Bendigo Landcare Group. A small island of environmental awareness, in a vast sea of consumerism.
