In Touch with the Earth, Elizabeth and Paul (Closeburn) / Artwork
This biochrome image was created with flora from Elizabeth and Paul's beautiful garden in Closeburn. It is part of a collaborative project ‘Habitat: A collection of artworks and stories of Pine Rivers Gardens’, focusing on residential gardens and gardeners of Moreton Bay in Queensland.
Gardens play a very important part in many people’s lives. A garden can stimulate peace and tranquillity; provide fruit and vegetables seasonally; be a place for family gatherings; foster fitness and recreational activity; encourage a connection to nature, whilst prompting a sense of pride and achievement in the owner. Residential gardens are also an essential resource for flora and fauna habitats, assisting in the maintenance of biodiversity within the region.
