Urban garden fertiliser use in Leschenault Catchment
The Regional Estuaries Initiative worked with Leschenault Catchment Council, The Forever Project and Colin Ashton-Graham to reduce the amount of fertiliser entering waterways from homes in Australind through the Love the Leschenault program.
Urban residents received over the phone advice on how their gardening habits can impact waterway health – 100 of which enjoyed in-home coaching sessions.
The program ran from April–November 2018 and was co-delivered with Revitalising Geographe Waterway’s ongoing Bay OK program.
