We usually think to look for grassland remnants along roadsides and on rail reserves on the Victorian Volcanic Plain Cemeteries are another good place to check out, but have you thought about going to church yard? At St George’s Church Balliang, there is tiny grassland treasure.
I was there on Wednesday chatting with a few people about what to look for and how to manage a remnant such as this one. As with most grassy remnants we need to manage the density of grass cover and this one needs a burn to open it up. Perhaps that will happen this autumn. You never know who has a little patch of grassland out the back. It is lovely to know this patch is in good hands.
