Summary

Three workshops  engage the coastal communities of Poona, Maaroom and Maryborough, on completion of the Coastal Gardens Planting Guide (CGPG) in collaboration with Fraser Coast Regional Council (FCRC). This includes promotional material of posters, flyers, a banner and media.

Two coastal gardens are established in the Fraser Coast region at Poona and one other site to be confirmed in consultaton with FCRC. The gardens are planned using landscape designs in the CGPG. They use coastal local endemic plant species and involve the local community in the planting and establishment as well as their long term maintenance and custodianship.

Benefits

  • Community engagement
  • The workshops informs coastal residents of suitable coastal local endemic plant species to grow in the place of non-indigenous plants in their gardens for improved surrounding habitat.
