Australian Plants Society (Victoria)

Promoting the Appreciation and Preservation of Australian Plants

APS Mitchell “Gardens for Wildlife Launch”

Guest Speaker – Garden Designer: Louise Costa

Louise Costa is passionate about connecting people to nature through her landscape design. Starting with a bare paddock, cape weed and under drought in the harsh growing conditions of Rushworth country was not an easy starting place for a Landscape Designer. Through painstaking work at building soil and microclimates, observing what plants thrived in local conditions and using plant selection that blended her local environment into her garden space, Lou has created an oasis – for people, insects and fauna. Louise and husband Les have transformed their space in Rushworth.

Gardens for Wildlife membership starter packs will be available to purchase & take home on the day. A once only fee of $20 provides for: A Sustainable Gardening booklet, a “Gardens for Wildlife” sign for your letterbox, a selection of native plants from a local nursery and a 10% discount at future “Gardens for Wildlife‟ talks and workshops, along with the opportunity to share your garden through our “Gardens for Wildlife” website page.
