'The three things we are doing down there (are) conserving the water that would have gone into the railway as a rubble pit and using it as a wetlands resource and watering an orchard; second thing we're doing is showing how you can have an urban backyard and live in it sustainably by having chooks, orchard, vegie garden, worm farm; the third area is around your biodiversity, having a sample of every type of plant that was on this block before white settlement, you see this was a wheat paddock in the 1860's.'
