Golden gnomes arrive in Unley (again)

Golden Gnomes are again popping up across the City of Unley. This time it is official.Council is rewarding residents with a small golden gnome for excellence in landscaping (and greening) their verges. Students from Concordia College assisted by painting the gnomes and creating gift tags. Also, at my suggestion, the students selected the worthy residents to get a gnome.A great outcome in helping to transform dolomite verges to blooming greenery.

A year ago I unofficially launched the concept and bought a bag full of gnomes and painted them gold with a few special ones painted a distinctive rose gold. I delivered them to worthy homes across Unley.Residents have been delighted with the recognition.If you missed out in getting a gnome, why not buy one (or two) and paint them gold. They would make excellent Christmas presents.
