In a recent Advertiser article Mitch spoke of the additional stories in the book. "A few community members have written stories about their experiences with plants, which adds a human element,"

Mitch "hope[s] people who don't necessarily have an interest in plants pick it up. I hope it will help people be more aware of the plants around them so they can help those plants thrive."

Tegan spoke about how "this work has led [her] to all corners of the island. It has made me observe and appreciate the environment more than just going for a walk. There's so much diversity here, even in a patch of grass."

This book can be used to help identify plants on Phillip Island, or as a guide when you're choosing plants for your garden.
