Arno KingNew book explores the plants & insects of SE Queensland

Common Scents book launch

Common Scent Organic Gardening is a new book full of beautiful images of the plants and insects of SE Qld. Author Pia Dowling is a keen organic gardener with a wealth of experience and passion for growing food in her 150sqm garden and the Qld museum has helped to identify the insects Pia has found there.

The book will be launched at the Qld Museum South Bank on Saturday February 23, 2013 from 10 am to 12 noon. Common Scent Organic Gardening is especially interesting for South East Queensland gardeners as very few (if any) other books have information on local garden insects.
