Experts worm their way into healthier gardens
A DOWN-TO-EARTH information session at Denman Park, Raymonds Hill, on Saturday gave out the dirt on worms.
In fact, the little wrigglers are extremely good for gardens and can be delivered right to the door of Ipswich householders.
Encased in their own "factory" made from 100 per cent recycled plastic they're a bargain at $85.
Ipswich City Council makes deliveries and orders are taken on 3810 6822.
Division six Councillor Cheryl Bromage said the council had partnered with the Ipswich Green group to stage Saturday's Brassall Urban Bushland Project.
Free plants and ice cream were bonuses for about 70 people who attended.
Guest speakers provided details about getting fit while reducing vehicle emissions, drought-proofing gardens, the re-use of building products and buying carbon credits.
The event also marked Save the Koala Month which ends on September 30.
The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) is selling black koala noses this month.
They estimate that there are less than 100,000 koalas left in the wild.
