Gorse Flower with moonIf you are a member of the Regional Council‘s Be the Difference program then you’ll be aware of their new promotion.

If not, then of course you should join (hint: it’s free).

Be the Difference are offering a prize draw of a garden makeover worth $3,000 for members who send them photos of the dodgy pest plants they’ve pulled out. Entry closes on 30 September.

Obviously this competition doesn’t make much sense for all you hip apartment dwellers out there, unless you’ve got some Old Man’s Beard in your [flower] bed – in which case it’s high time you got rid of him anyway.

So join up, enter the compeition, and with luck you’ll obtain funding for that all-paved-garden look you’ve been hankering for.
