Cover of Smart Gardens for a Dry Climate booklet linking to the PDFOur new-look Smart Gardens for a Dry Climate (PDF 3.8MB) booklet is bigger, brighter and bursting with useful content and inspirational ideas for creating and maintaining waterwise gardens in a changing climate. 

The booklet includes:

  • Region focus - a look at soil types and climate from the nine local council areas across the Coliban Water region, with information on councils’ green waste and gardening initiatives.
  • Traditional lands - Harley Douglas, a Djaara man and project officer at Dja Dja Wurrung Enterprises, writes on the local plants used or food, medicine and fibre, and shares the Djaara language names for plants. 
  • Design vision - inspirational illustrations with ideas for native, entertaining, children’s play, cottage and townhouse gardens.
  • Information on healthy soil, plant selection, water conservation practices, a visual plant guide and much more. 

Copies of Smart Gardens for a Dry Climate booklet can also be picked up at local libraries across the Coliban Water region.
