The book is a photographic guide covering over 280 local species.
Just about all local native plants you are likely to see.
Photos are close ups of flowers and foliage as well as whole plants.
The text for each species is in simple language suitable for both the novice and people who know plants well.
Using this book, which is arranged intuitively in lifeforms, anybody should be able to identify our native plants correctly.
Perfect for those visiting or working in the bush such as members of the Friends of Parks Groups.
As the Landcare Group is not trying to make a lot of money out of the book we are offering the book for $30 (normally retailed at $39.95) to community groups if they buy ten or more copies.
Groups can choose to sell the book at it’s regular price creating fundraising for the group, or sell the book cheaply to its members. Money can be paid to KLG after the books have been sold.
We have had excellent feedback on the book from all who have bought it so far.
So far we have only accessed a small portion of our books by air freight.
The bulk of the order is arriving by ship in 2 - 3 weeks time.
