Many gardens and lawns only require watering
once per week and even less if there has been
rainfall. So check your soil first to see if your
garden actually needs watering.
When can I water?
With spring upon us, and the warmer weather on the way, now is the
perfect time to make sure you know when and how you can water your
gardens and lawns under Permanent Water Conser vation Measures.
• Sprinklers and other irrigation systems, including drip irrigation,
may only be used to water lawns and plants after 6pm and before 9am
on any day.
• A hand-held hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, a bucket or a watering
can may be used to water lawns and plants at any time.
At all times lawns and plants may only be watered without causing
pooling or runoff.

Conservation Measures visit actew.com.au or call ACTEW s

Search on for inspirational Canberran
THE search is on for a Canberran to
grace the cover of the 2012-2013
White and Yellow Pages.
Sensis is calling for inspirational
locals who have gone above and
beyond in challenging times to feature
under the theme A Helping Hand, The
The organisation is searching for
people in Canberra, Yass and Quean-
beyan to celebrate their willingness to
lend a hand when times get tough.
They might have led recovery
efforts after natural disasters, support-
ed the vulnerable, or they might be
long time volunteers who do not
hesitate in helping others.
Weetangera resident Keith Colls
featured on this year's cover under the
theme Australians Creating a Better
Future and encouraged people to
nominate someone they believe is a
"It's very gratifying that people
recognise the work is useful that
they're doing," he said.
Mr Colls is an active member of
Canberra Organic Growers Society
and was president for six years before
he retired in March.
He has helped with the establish-
ment of 11 community gardens around
Canberra and has run courses on the
benefits of growing organic gardens.
Mr Colls says one of the aims of the
organisation is to get people more
connected with where their food comes
He discovered he had been recogn-
ised for his work in this field when told
about his nomination for the White
"I was a bit surprised but very
grateful that the work of COG was
recognised," Mr Colls said.
He's still not sure who made the
nomination, but said it was surprising
to be named the cover winner.
"I was just a representative of a lot
of people who've
done a lot of work,"
"I thought it was
more me represent-
ing them, rather
than recognising me." To nominate a
person who has helped others, Sensis
requires a written application.
Two hundred words or less must be
provided on how the nominee has
helped strengthen or contributed to the
community, in one or more of the
following ways -- the person may have
performed an action that has resulted
in a positive impact, undertaken pro-
jects in the community to help others,
initiated projects or activities to help
the community overcome ongoing
struggles or difficulties, volunteered to
help protect, re-establish or rebuild the
community, or inspired others to
undertake projects to help better the
Nominations for the White and
Yellow pages covers close October 3.
