Bay OK garden on show!

03 October, 2019

GeoCatch is hosting its first ever Bay OK garden party this Sunday! Gardening celebrity, Chris Ferreira, will join passionate home gardener and Bay OK Project Officer, Lisa Massey, to showcase her Bay OK garden in Busselton.

“We would like to show people how a low nutrient and water efficient garden can be both beautiful and low maintenance,” said Lisa.

The Forever Project’s Chris Ferreira will take visitors on two hour-long walks through the garden, sharing practical tips and advice on how to garden successfully.

Walking through the features of Lisa’s garden, Chris will talk about how to amend sandy soil, make good compost, create healthy soil and plants, and incorporate biodiversity into the backyard.

Lisa says that as well as being productive, functional and healthy, her garden is also having a positive impact on our environment by protecting local waterways and Geographe Bay.

“Using Bay OK principles has helped me reduce my fertiliser and water use in the garden,” said Lisa.

“Many gardeners mistakenly apply fertiliser when their plants actually need something else.”

The event will be held on 6 October in Busselton, with two ‘walk and talk’ sessions at 11:00am and 12:30pm. Everyone is welcome, and registrations are essential.

GeoCatch’s Bay OK project is part of the Revitalising Geographe Waterways program which is supported by the State Government to improve water quality, waterway health and management of Geographe waterways.
