It is refreshing to see the landscape come to life after rain! These constructed wetlands at Stonehill Estate in Bacchus Marsh were ringing with frog calls on a site visit this morning. I'm no frog expert, but they sound like Common Froglet and Poddlebonk. We have seen many birds at this site including a swooping Magpie.
The pond was planted in 2014 and the series of ponds will eventually extend down the gully to Werribee River.
Central Ballarat Produce Garden
Great to see the first fruit trees planted in the rain today at the produce garden that we have been working on over the past few months and which Jacaranda Landscapes have been constructing over the past 6 weeks.
The garden includes a timber clad chook shed and garden shed, fully enclosed chook runs, Corten steel raised vegetable garden beds, compost bays and productive gardens for fruit and vegetables.
