if you love native gardens, want some inspiration and are interested in frog ponds and wildlife habitat I can highly recommend the:
Open Garden at
18 Hawk Lane, Pomona, QLD
Saturday 27th March 2021 (9am-4pm)
Sunday 28th March 2021 (9am-4pm)
The property is 6.5 acres of gently sloping north-facing land, located in the Noosa Hinterland. The land is bordered on the northern side by Six Mile Creek, which runs between Pomona and Cooran. The gardens and property have been developed since 2002.
The main focus of the garden/property is habitat creation for native birds, frogs, reptiles, small marsupials and insects
We have planted thousands of native and endemic plants to help support these animals, as well as importing rocks, logs and mulch to create the habitat which supports abundant wildlife. We have installed over 70 habitat ponds and 12 bird baths across the property, which have greatly increased the biodiversity throughout the property.
Organic home food production also makes up a major element of the garden/property
We grow 100+ species of edible plants ranging from vegetables, herbs and permaculture plants, through to Australian bush foods and exotic fruit and nut trees.
The garden also contains plenty of exotic plants, including: clumping bamboo, trees, shrubs, herbs and ground covers.
