Indigenous and Native Garden begins at the Northcote Library Food Garden

A macadamia tree is planted in the NLFG

The first plants in the Northcote Library Food Garden’s indigenous/native food garden are in and appear to be enjoying their new home at the Southern end of the garden.
The indigenous/native garden was proposed way back in April last year in the community consultation phase of the garden’s establishment.  Members of the local community felt it would be fitting and beneficial to include an area that showcased the growing of native and local indigenous plants within the garden and the gardening group earmarked the project early on as an important ‘Phase 2’ action.  The indigenous/native garden’s inclusion is an exciting step towards the educational and sustainability vision for the NLFG as outlined by the community in 2011.
