under the pump Funding for icon in doubt?
By BRAD PERRY
REASSURANCES are being sought from the State Government that it will continue funding to guarantee the iconic Humphrey Pump operates as a major attraction in the Riverland. Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone is seeking clarification from SA Water about the funding situation following concerns raised by volunteers involved
with the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum. “I want the State Government to continue their support through SA Water in funding so that we continue to have the Humphrey Pump as a working display,” Mr Whetstone said. “The clouding issue at the mo-
ment is about public liability, so that is the burning issue.” The historic working display has been out of action since a gas leak was detected in the pump in May and an investigation was launched. An SA Water spokesperson said the company is currently reviewing sponsorship arrangements.
“SA Water have provided up to approximately $50,000 in funding per year (to the museum),” they said. “This funding covers the maintenance of buildings and facilities, upkeep of the grounds, operational costs and insurance. “Staff from SA Water recently
met with the Cobdogla Steam Friends Society and the National Trust of SA (Barmera branch) to discuss funding options. “SA Water understands the importance of the Cobdogla museum to the Riverland region and will continue to work closely with these groups and other potential partners.” n Continued Page 2

Mr Whetstone said the world’s only operating humphrey pump, which runs four times a year, is a major drawcard for the region. “It’s really an iconic landmark for the museum, for Cobdogla and also for the region because it is the centrepiece, it is the drawcard that people go to the museum to
see working,” he said. With the Cobdogla water tower demolished on Friday the steam museum will be able to resume normal opening hours. “They are delighted to have the tower removed and it will allow them now to get on with opening up the museum and putting their passion back on display,” Mr Whetstone said.
Two local silos to close VITERRA will close silos at Paringa and Waikerie for the coming season due to a smaller crop being predicted. Viterra country operations manager Andrew Hannon told ABC radio that the silos will only be shut for the coming harvest. “In consultation with silo committees across the state, we’ve decided to not open those smaller sites and focus on the major sites and the surrounding sites to those regions,” he said.
Brad Perry RIVERLAND residents are about to be part of local history. With Renmark Paringa Council distributing waste collection bins this month, we are so close to having the region’s first ever kerbside recycling. For years metropolitan areas have been kerbside recycling and
Country Health’s realignment THE Riverland will fall under a new region as part of Country Health SA’s introduction of a new operational organisational structure from December 1. Aimed at improving rural health services in South Australia, the Riverland will be part of the Riverland Mallee Coorong rural region from the start of next month. Country Health SA Chief Executive, Adjunct Professor Belinda Moyes said the contemporary structure would also make CHSA consistent with other states and better aligned with the Medicare Local regions. “The new structure will consist of five separate rural regions rather than the current 10 Clusters,” she said. “The introduction of the new structure follows significant consultation with stakeholders which has helped us to decide the right structure for Country Health SA. “Patients can be assured
it seems a little “backwards” that it has taken so long for us to get to this stage. The system does come at a cost and given the response by ratepayers about rising council rates, some residents will disagree with its introduction. For many residents, it will be a whole new way of looking at your rubbish as a number of
there will be no disruption to our services as we transition to the new structure, and they will continue to receive the same high-level of care from their local CHSA services.
The new structure will consist of five separate rural regions.
As part of the new area, the Riverland will have Wayne Champion as a regional director. “The structure will include improved reporting lines, with each region headed by a regional director, who will each be supported by one or two regional operational managers and corporate services managers, depending on their size,” Ms
people are likely to have never thought about recycling in so much depth. I personally see the move to kerbside recycling as a way of the future. I know from experience living in metropolitan areas that it significantly cuts down on waste going to landfill. And while the waste will
Moyes said. “The new structure will also help to better manage duplication of services across each rural region and address any potential gaps in service. “South Australia, like the rest of Australia, has an ageing population and CHSA provides 35 per cent of all aged care beds in the country SA. “To help manage this, we’re introducing an Aged Care Sub-Acute and Community Health Director to focus on residential Aged Care Services in SA. “This role will also manage the relationship between CHSA and the Medicare Locals to help us transition to new primary health care service delivery models.” Over the next few weeks staff will work through a transitionary process to implement the new structure while business continues as normal.

be trucked out of the region in the short term, it is encouraging to hear each of the councils admitting that a regional waste facility may be a better long term option. It has been a drawn out process to finally get the three bin system after years of discussions but in the long run I see it as a positive move for the region.

$10 million in announcements delayed to seek further detail
Riverland Futures Fund recipients still waiting AN announcement on the remaining recipients of the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund has been delayed and will be announced before the end of the year as some projects through to the final stage require further detail. During question time in Parliament last week, Regional Development Minister Gail Gago revealed that agencies have had to request further information for some projects despite the already lengthy process. “There was a process of ex-
pressions of interest that went out and they were then shortlisted and those applicants were then advised,” Minister Gago said.
“For some of them, further details was needed, and some agencies have gone back and requested some of that information, so those matters are in the
If the funds were not fully expended then further rounds would be put out. “Those applicants who had suitable proposals were then invited to work up the details to their grant proposals and to submit them. “That is what is being gone through at the moment.
process of being finalised.” Minister Gago said if all the funds were fully spent, there would be no further calls for grant proposals. “If the funds were not fully expended after this pro-
cess, then further rounds would be put out publicly,” she said. “Sometimes a proposal might be put forward and it might be agreed to, and then for some reason the recipient is not able to proceed with their grant and they might withdraw from that, and those moneys then become available back to the grant.” With about $10 million remaining in the fund, Minister Gago said applications “are still being considered in terms of how the remaining funds will be allocated”.

Safety on the road ROAD safety and laws were the focus of a two day course hosted by the South Australian Police at a local school this week. Road Safety Educator Senior Constable First Class Ian Gregor held a course at St Joseph’s School Renmark, where children were taught to obey the road rules through riding their bikes. “We started off with road safety and road laws in the classroom environment, explaining the need for them, even though they are quite young, to understand what the road rules are,” he said. “The bike riding session is basically an introduction to road safety but it is not actually teaching them skills it is more teaching them how to follow instructions

and also how to observe what’s happening around them.” Constable Gregor said educating about road safety around schools is extremely important. “I’ve been doing this close on 20 years now because prior to doing this work I was on the road and had to go to several crashes and to me it’s something that’s really important,” he said. St Joseph’s School Renmark teacher Greg Reeks said the lessons may give the children confidence to safely ride to school. “We thought it would be a very important part of the children’s development to learn to ride properly on the roads and to ride safely and to encourage children to ride their bikes to school,” he said.

$150,000 Waikerie fire Berri man charged with disorderly behaviour A SHED fire at Waikerie on Tuesday afternoon has caused about $150,000 damage. Country Fire Services were called to a fire on Maggea Road, near Waikerie, where a shed containing a large amount of hay and farm equipment caught fire. Police said there appears to be no suspicious circumstances at this stage.
A 29-year-old Berri man was arrested in a shopping centre on Vaughan Terrace at Berri on Tuesday and charged with disorderly behaviour and stating a false name. Members of the public alerted police to the man’s presence when he was seen banging a pub-
lic phone on his head. The man then went into a supermarket and became abusive to customers and staff, and when police arrived the man is alleged to have stated a false name. He will be appearing in the Magistrates court at a later date.

MEMBER for Chaffey Tim Whetstone has been awarded a Parliamentary secretary role as part of the South Australian Liberal Party Cabinet reshuffle announced on Tuesday. Mr Whetstone was appointed to the Liberal Party Shadow Cabinet, taking on the Shadow Parliamentary Secretary portfolios of Water Security, the River Murray and Environment and Conservation. “I’m quite excited that being given this role will allow me to represent Chaffey in a bigger capacity,” Mr Whetstone told the Riverland Weekly. “The leadership team have seen my worth on representing the region through River Murray and en-
vironmental issues and that’s my strength that I bring to Parliament. “Rather than influence policies and decision making within the party, I’ll be there in a greater capacity to write policies and also have a bigger responsibility to reflect the region’s centrepiece and that is the river and the environment.” Part of the new role focuses on water reform in the Murray Darling Basin, which Mr Whetstone said is very important to the electorate of Chaffey. “The Liberal Party will pursue a fair and balanced Basin Plan that delivers a healthy river system and water security for food producers and river communities,” he said.
“We will also continue to hold the Weatherill Labor Government accountable for its inconsistencies, its diluted demands and political exploitation of water reform. “Conservation of our natural environment, and sustainable management of natural resources, is also a passion of mine and of critical importance to the future of South Australia. “Chaffey features a wealth of natural areas and environmental assets, including two RAMSAR-listed wetlands, and our community values them very highly.” Member for Stuart, which covers the Mid Murray area, Dan van Holst Pellekaan was promoted to mining, police and prisons portfolios.
High applications for Christmas appeal ORGANISERS of this year’s Riverland Christmas Appeal are predicting another busy festive period with applications for assistance already flowing in. Riverland Christmas Appeal co-ordinator Cheryle Taylor (pictured) said she expects the volunteers to pack a similar number to the 550 hampers given out last year. “With the amount of people coming in for applications, I’ve got a feeling
it could be the same, if not worse, than last year with the businesses up here that have been closing down,” she said. “We normally do get
a lot of support from the Riverland and there is quite a bit of support that comes from Adelaide and other places too.” Mrs Taylor said more donations are required to keep up with demand with Christmas just around the corner. She said offering hampers to those who need it is very rewarding. “The ones that are doing it tough, at least they are going to have something for
Christmas,” she said. “If it comes from us it is only a small thing but it is big in their eyes.” Meanwhile, the Ulysses Club Inc. Mallee Branch will host the annual Riverland Christmas Appeal Tucker and Toy Run on December 2. Donations for the Riverland Christmas Appeal can be made to various businesses across the region, see page 18 for more details.
Creative writers take on 50,000 word challenge to write a novel during November A GROUP of enthusiastic Riverland creative writers are participating in an ambitious challenge this month to write a 50,000 word novel. As part of an international initiative helping aspiring writers known as NaNoWriMo, members of the Riverland Creative Writing Group have decided to accept the challenge, which requires an average of more than 1500 words per day. The group, which reformed a few months ago, has embraced the idea with facilitator Alysha Herrmann describing the project as a fun challenge. “My background is as a playwright, I write plays and poems, the whole novel writing thing is a totally different style, so quite challenging for me,” she said. “What I’m doing is using it as an opportunity to
■ WRITERS: (From left) James O’Keefe, Alysha Herrmann and Karl Raams are all participating. do some groundwork for a play I’m actually working on, which is for children. “I think it’s like with anything you want to do, you have to make time and you have to be disciplined about it.” The writing group meets in Berri weekly and there is a number of participants taking part in the 50,000 word novel project.
One of those is Monash’s James O’Keefe, who has participated in the annual event a number of times in the past. However, Mr O’Keefe said juggling family and working life with trying to write a novel in a short space of time has been tough but he has aspirations to one day publish his own book.
“It’s expression of freedom and one day I want to get some stuff published, I’ve had one short story published before but I’d like to get a novel done,” he said. Fellow participant from Monash, Karl Raams, has always enjoyed writing but is using the project and group to pursue his passion for it. “I decided to get involved after I heard about it because I enjoyed writing at high school, I enjoy putting words together but I had just never found any time or motivation for doing it before,” he said. “I joined the group in hope to help motivate myself to keep doing it each week.” For more information about the Riverland Creative Writing Group, contact Alysha on 041 626 7391.

Prepare for next drought A LEADING rural counsellor believes “the next drought is just around the corner” and it may determine the future for a number of Riverland and Mallee farmers with mounting debt. Rural Business Support general manager Kay Matthias said the future of the family farm in the region will be determined in the coming years and if farmers do not adapt to current practices, then they may be forced out of the industry. “We see businesses continuing to recover from the drought, however, many of them had their levels of debt go so high that it’s going to take quite some years for them to recover,” she said. “We’ve seen a lot of
people exit the industry, particularly in this area, and I think the future of the family farm is at a very important point in its evolvement. “I think the small family farm has got to really rationalise, has really got to start to accept that they

The government has made it quite clear there will be no drought relief. must have best practice management just to be able to survive and compete in a market driven world.” Ms Matthias said the outlook for farming is very positive but those in the industry must be weary that there will be no more drought assistance. “The government has
the need for farmers tto be really conscious of the need to be viable and to adopt good management practices, good technologies and all of those things that are out there. “They really have to be serious about farming in a difficult environment without government support.”
It is inevitable that some farmers will leave the industry in the near future, according to Ms Matthias. “There are great opportunities but we must be mindful that the next drought is just around the corner and that we are living in a climate variability world now where droughts will be the norm,” she said. “There will defiit nitely be some (farmers) go, there will be some that are just not viable enough or their debt level is too high for them to survive another drought without any support. “We’ve been case managing clients in the Riverland to face a world and farming without drought assistance.”

WITNESS THE IMPOSSIBLE
Single homeless site hard to police? THE Berri Barmera Council plans to meet with local ministers and key stakeholders despite doubts over plans to nominate a specific area for homeless people in the district. The old Rodeo Grounds near the Berri Bridge had previously been raised as a potential area for homeless people to use as a camping area but Berri Barmera
Council chief executive officer David Beaton said he is unsure whether the idea put forward will be feasible. “We’ve got Martin’s Bend as a designated camping area,” he said. “So to try and then make another area...it just creates another site that we have to look after and police.” Mr Beaton said council
plans to hold a meeting to discuss the concept. “Before you try and make any rules and regulations, you actually need to understand from the homeless and the people that serve them, what exactly is the use or abuse of an area and what sort of structure you can put in there to either have people there or move them on,” he said.
“It is just a matter of if we are going to have a designated area that we can look after and maintain it and make sure it is safe for people. “I’m not sure we necessarily want to create another area but there is people using it, so by the same token we just need to understand from the people that look after them, what’s going on.”

SOLAR NEWS Making Solar Paperwork Easy. Supply and ďŹ tment of a Solar Power system is quite involved from a paperwork perspective. Lodgement of Small Embedded Generator Approvals, STC (Rebate) Transfer forms and the like with relevant power authorities are just some of many approvals required to have your Solar Power System installed There is some real disparity between Solar Companies when it comes to paperwork and approvals processing. Some of the Solar Companies in the marketplace at present are focused on delivering cheap systems and sometimes leave the ETSA (now known as â€œSA Power Networksâ€?) meter ďŹ tment and Feed In Tariff Declaration up to the client to organise. When choosing a Solar Installation company, ask questions related to a â€œcomplete serviceâ€? offering. If your solar company offers a complete service, they will undertake the process to submit an SA Power Networks declarations and import-export meter supply and ďŹ tment approval The SA Power Networks website and associated documentation makes reference to both of these approvals being a â€œregulatory requirementâ€? in order to connect your Solar Power System to the Grid with full compliance.

BERRI Barmera Council is hoping to divert up to 60 per cent of what currently goes to landfill in the district with the new kerbside recycling system to begin in January. Green waste collected through the system is going to be used to rehabilitate the Monash landfill, according to chief executive officer David Beaton. â€œFrom January next year weâ€™ll have the three bin system in town and two bin system for people outside of town,â€? he said. â€œThat will give people a chance to get rid of their rubbish before our dump changes to a waste transfer station, so people will still be able to dump their waste but they wonâ€™t necessarily be able to do it exactly as it was done before. â€œWeâ€™re hopeful weâ€™ll be able to lose between 50 to 60 per cent of what currently goes to landfill to go into the green waste and the recycling. â€œThe green waste we are going to be able to use to rehabilitate the Monash landfill to help cap that and the recycling we take out will be able to be processed and reused.â€? Mr Beaton said council is offering a $20 concession to pensioners and self funded retirees as part of the bin roll out, which he believes is the only discount of its type in South Australia. â€œA lot of people have said theyâ€™ve recycled in other places that they have lived in and are looking forward to it coming to the Riverland,â€? he said. The construction of a regional waste facility is also an option to be discussed in the future, according to Mr Beaton. â€œThatâ€™s something the councils may have a look at in the future but all the councils are focused on making sure we implement the three bin system and get that right first before we try and do anything else.â€?

â– Loxton Waikerie Councilâ€™s Stephen Bateman (left), Ruth Firstbrook and Chris Fels with the three bin system.
Setting the pace with bin trial THE Loxton Waikerie Council was the first in the Riverland to implement a kerbside recycling bin trial, a move which it believes will be of major benefit to the roll out of the system in January. Loxton Waikerie Council development and community services manager Stephen Bateman said the trial, which has run for over 12 months, has provided some interesting details. â€œWe know the weights of the bins, we know on average itâ€™s 8.23 kilograms in a residual waste bin, itâ€™s about 12.7 kilos in the recycling bin and in the green waste itâ€™s about 13 to 16 kilos a fortnight,â€? he said. â€œWhen you start taking the green waste and the recyclables together, we start putting that with the actual kilograms and you are putting up nearly 27 to 30 kilos that is being diverted from landfill. â€œIt shows you the diversion rate we are looking at is obtainable and we can just about better it.â€? Mr Bateman said there has been â€œthe odd one or twoâ€? residents telling council they object to the new three bin system when it rolls out next month. â€œObviously you are going to have the odd one or two come in and say you shouldnâ€™t do it but we find when we explain to them the reasons we are doing it, they start to understand,â€? he said. Loxton Waikerie Council may support a regional waste facility being constructed in the Riverland in the future, according to Mr Bateman. â€œWeâ€™ve got no option at the moment but to transport and dispose of all of our waste in Adelaide because there is no regional facility,â€? Mr Bateman said. â€œI think once the waste really starts to take hold, I think commonsense may prevail where people have really got to start looking at what is the cost of putting in a regional landfill and what is the benefits of that are going to be. â€œWhen they start putting that together they will then have a really good idea of the actual cost, not what we think it is going to be.â€?
â– Renmark Paringa Council infrastructure services director Paul Day with one of the new bins for the district.
Goal to divert 65 per cent of waste RESIDENTS in the Renmark Paringa Council area will be the first to receive their new waste bins throughout November. Council infrastructure services director Paul Day said sorting rubbish will limit the impact on the environment, save costs associated with landfill disposal and make a positive contribution to a sustainable future. â€œTo make it easy for our residents, the bin lids will clearly state what can and cannot go into them,â€? Mr Day said. â€œWeâ€™re relying on our residents to sort their waste into the correct bins. â€œIt only takes a small amount of contamination in a load of recyclables for it to be dumped into landfill, which is expensive and wasteful. â€œIf we have any contamination of a recyclable bin, for example, that has to go to landfill, we lose all of those recyclables, it costs everyone more money and doesnâ€™t improve the environment.â€? Mr Day said council is aiming to divert 65 per cent of its waste from being disposed to landfill with the introduction of the new waste collection bins. â€œMost councils when they first start it is probably around the 45 to 50 per cent but with really good education, we are hoping to push that up to at least 65 per cent out of the waste stream,â€? he said. â€œWith the cost of taking solid waste to landfill now increasing every year, the more we can take out of the waste stream, the cheaper it is going to be eventually for everyone.â€? Mr Day said a regional landfill site will always be an option in the long term. â€œCouncil still believes there are cheaper and more efficient ways of getting rid of our waste and whether that possibly is a regional landfill again, I think we will definitely be looking at that into the future,â€? he said. â€œParticularly with the cost of the introduction of the carbon tax and the increase of fuel every year, I think we will be able to get the figures to show that going with a regional landfill or at least, individual landfills down the track, is possibly going to save everyone money.â€?

THE Riverland will welcome 30 cars from the glory days of Bathurst as part of the inaugural Aussie Muscle Car Run on Wednesday. Raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundationâ€™s new $9.5 million regional patient village, the run will leave Adelaide on Monday and travel 2747 kilometres over seven days. Aussie Muscle Car Run chairman Kevin May said locals will be able to see the classic cars and meet drivers when they arrive in Renmark. Those involved in the run will also be able to test their driving skills in a closed road circuit on Paringa Road from 11.30am to 3.30pm, with locals encouraged to come along and watch. â€œWe thought weâ€™d come up to the Riverland because weâ€™ve got interstate visitors and itâ€™s a lovely sight up there,â€? Mr May told the Riverland Weekly. Mr May said there will be a variety of cars featuring in the run including American Muscle cars from 1965 to 1978 such as Camaros, Mustangs and Corvettes. â€œThere will be some interesting cars, interesting characters and some history about the cars, where they came from and who owned them,â€? he said.

AND ANOTHER THING...
Children donate to fostercare
Local builders’ top awards
DURING the recent National Fostercare Week, children from the Riverland Central Christian Church, in Glossop, decided to help Riverland children in fostercare and their carers. The group of children decided to make up carepacks for kids in fostercare. They asked the rest of the church to help and were able to make up 20 packs filled with items like toys, photo frames, toiletries, socks and letters of encouragement from the church. On top of the generous packs, the Riverland Central Christian Church then added a $50 gift voucher to

Lucy Centofanti and Tenille Chartres, representing ac.care, received the care packs from the church on behalf of the foster children and carers. Riverland Central Christian Church pastor Joella Crossfield said providing aid to the less fortunate was a very rewarding experience. ”We just really wanted to show love to children, who for whatever reason, spend time in fostercare, and also to honour those wonderful people who become foster carers to love and care for these children,” she said.

The event was action packed and the meal was delightful. Congratulations to all of you who made it a very worthwhile night of entertainment. Job well done.

Who is left to pay off the burgeoning burden? IT’S a funny world! How will our Treasurer achieve his promised surplus after false promises and years of spending borrowed money with no accountability as to how we benefit? We let foreign countries and companies buy and control our strategic wealth creating assets then wonder why government tax revenue is down. Join the dots – profits now go off shore that were once reinvested here. Our tax laws favour foreign companies with 10 per cent withholding tax on profits. Who is left to pay off our burgeoning debt? Answer: Australian businesses who have taken the initiative to start and build businesses and not ask for handouts. In the meantime it is the foreign interests laughing all the way to our bank. Lynne Wilkinson, Ausbuy CEO.

Loveday camp history I HAVE been researching the history of the Loveday Internment camps and I found an information document written by Lt Col ET Dean. The document tells me that it is 70 years since Col Dean started talks with the Barmera Co-op Packing Union. He asked them whether they would be prepared to start taking fruit from the Loveday Internment Camp gardens to be processed into cans to be distributed to other army, navy and air bases throughout Australia. The Barmera Co-op rejected this offer.
Have your say about the issues that affect you. Col Dean then approached the Berri Co-op Packing Union (which later became the Berri Co-op) and this offer was received with open arms. The Co-op proessed the tomatoes for some time and then later the local packing sheds drew up a plan to join forces and start a new processing plant for tomatoes, citrus and stone fruits into the juice market. In that same year, tomatoes grown in the Loveday camp gardens were processed as juice and then distributed. Other things were also produced in cans that were surplus to the local camp’s needs. Carrots, beetroot and other vegetables were canned fresh, not juiced, ready to be eaten. At war’s end, the Co-ops had come to an agreement to form a new company which was named Berri Fruit Juices. So it was because of Col Dean that the now well known brand was started. Unfortunately this business has now been taken over by a multinational company. I feel that we must pay tribute to Col Dean, who had such a great foresight for our district all those years ago. Also we are thankful this history was documented in the 1940s, so it is preserved for future generations. We, at the Barmera National Trust, want to be able to put our history on show for all to see, so it is not hidden in someone’s back room or shed. Over the past 12 months we have received a large amount of photos and documents on the Loveday Internment Camp and it gives us the will to be able to carry on collecting and preserving our history for future generations. Max Scholz, Barmera.

Murray Man success I would like to express my gratitude to the organisers of the Murray Man Triathlon being the Adelaide Triathlon Club and all of their volunteers. In trying hot and windy conditions, the Murray Man Triathlon Australian Age Group Long Course Championships was held at Barmera on Sunday. What an awesome venue and event. It had great spectator support which was appreciated. Lake Bonney is a fantastic swim course; clean and safe, as was the entire cycle and run course. Special thanks to Malcolm Otto, the race director - he’s here, he’s there, he’s everywhere - what a superb job. A big, big thank you to the Berri Barmera Council and the whole team for the entire weekend, their attention to detail was brilliant. Thanks to Pete Weston who volunteered his time on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The Thomas family; and the Lake Bonney Yacht Club, what a beautiful site for a triathlon.
To the Lions Club - can they work; and to all of the local Riverland volunteers, you are amazing, thank you. A highlight on the run were some of the Barmera residents standing out with their hoses showering the runners in the heat, it helped enormously. It was tough but a great experience. Thank you for making it happen. Ruth Strout, Barmera.
Riverland proud IT is fantastic to see the Riverland uniting for events like the Riverland Field Days, the Riverland Balloon Fiesta, the Riverland Wine and Food Festival and last weekend, the national Murray Man Triathlon. These events have benefits for multiple towns and showcase our district, encouraging return visitors. We have a fabulous area and should all be proud Riverlanders. Chris Thomas, Barmera.

leaves there. I use it to cover the garden with about two inches of the mulch. That keeps the water in and the garden from drying away.
Q: How much time do you spend in the garden? A: On average I spend a couple of hours every day and do a fair bit of watering at the front.
Q: What is your favourite plant orr species in your garden? A: The pelagonia, which is part of the geranium family is my favourite. It has great bushes which are about six feet wide and four feet high.
Q: How did you adapt your garden to cope during the drought?
Q: What advice would you give to someone maintaining their garden during the hotter months?
A: During the drought I just put water on it every two days and just into the roots.

Q: What is the most challenging aspect of your garden? A: The weeds are a nuisance but there are lots of plants that I just let grow wild and they look really good.
GARDENING WITH Andrew Walladge: Back to basics
HAVE long advised customers to use drought tolerant, frost hardy and long living plants to form the framework of a garden. This is especially applicable to gardeners working with ‘blank canvases’ or even for older gardens having a major makeover. Part of a framework could include screens for privacy or hiding utility areas. Most men like an area somewhere to deposit treasures for later possible use. These usually look better not seen! Other parts of a framework would include shelter from our sometimes savage south west winds bringing a change in weather. Also shade is an important element of any
garden in the Riverland and Mallee. It is these parts of a garden that truly makes a garden a pleasant place to be. The following are some good basic tough plants that require virtually no maintenance while still providing a vital role in the garden. For screening plants, Acacia iteaphylla Flinders Range wattle is hard to beat. Growing to three to four metres it has grey green leaves and wattle yellow flowers during autumn and winter. Atriplex nummularia old man salt bush is another bulletproof plant at two to three metres and grows almost anywhere. Many of the Callistemon or bottlebrushes do
■ GREAT OPTION: The Eucalyptus Leucoxylon Megalocarpa is a top variety to provide shade and shelter. Photo: ADA WALLADGE very well at screening, provided they receive at least some watering. Grevillea olivacea olive leaved Grevillea grows to two to three metres and has red, orange and yellow flowering forms but does need reasonable drainage. Acacia salicina, Eucalyptus leucoxylon megalo-
carpa and Eucalyptus salubris are all great shade and shelter trees that grow to around 10 metres. There are of course plenty of others to choose from, but the message is simple; plant large trees and shrubs for the long term that won’t break your budget keeping them healthy.
