Have you thought about trapping rainwater in your garden? Its not hard to do, start by digging swales around plants so rainwater flows in easily, then mulch as evaporation is very high in Broome. You will help stop the large loads of pindan washing into the bay during heavy rainfall. This photo taken on Tuesday this week tells the story.
This innovative gardening project is sponsored by Inspiring Australia and Rangelands NRM.
