On Wednesday, the Daylesford and District Horticultural Society (DDHS) launched a film featuring local author and gardener, Jill Teschendorff, showing us how we can help protect wildlife by including habitat in our backyards.

Grow Wild was produced by the Daylesford Hortis in cooperation with Spa Country Events. It was funded by a Hepburn Shire coronavirus community support grant and the DDHS. Filming was done by local photographer Lee-Anne Richards and it was edited by Kiri Lake.

The film follows the book written by Jill, Grow Wild: Gardening to sustain wildlife in the Hepburn Shire. The book was funded through a Biodiversity Grant from the Hepburn Shire Council and by Wombat Forestcare Inc, who published it early in 2020.

The Wombat Post published this review of the book in May.
