Broulee's Art on the Path is back Sun Sept 30th
Broulee’s Art on the Path is back and will this month host one of Council’s popular free plant swaps.
Residents can take invasive weeds from their garden to the sustainable market on Sunday 30 September and swap them for free native plants.

Art on the Path aims to help residents become more sustainable in their everyday life. It features lots of stalls from sustainable artists and artisans and showcases local environmental projects and groups.
Council’s Landcare Coordinator Emma Patyus said bringing along environmental weeds and swapping them for free native plants was a great way to be part of the solution.
Some of the more common problem weeds throughout the shire include home-grown favourites like Agapanthus, African Daisy, Honeysuckle and Asparagus Fern.
“Council’s plant swaps are about 'getting to the source' of local weed outbreaks and every garden counts,” Emma said.
“If plants aren’t your thing, you might like to find out how to keep bees and produce your own honey, or get some beeswax wraps to use at home so you can say goodbye to cling film wrap for good.
“You will be amazed by the diversity and ingenuity of our local artists and be inspired by their passions for protecting our natural environment.”
Market-goers can also chat to Council’s environment team, or catch up with volunteers from the Nature Coast Marine Group.
Art on the Path will be held on the shared pathway on Coronation Drive, Broulee, opposite the Broulee Post Office, from 8am to midday.
