Hazel Dempster – Anthill Farm

Hazel Dempster , from the Society’s Northern Suburbs Branch, will be talking about Red Trees at Anthill Farm – a wheat farm near Geraldton that has an explosion of colour after good rains in both virgin and re-claimed bushlands.

Hazel first discovered Ant Hill Farm when she had an invite from, Jane the owner of the farm, after she enquired about a plant she had never seen before when she was taking a load of wheat to the Yuna Silos. She called it a “Top Hat plant” (Verticordia oculata). Later she took a piece to Geraldton with her to show a friend, Jenna Brooker. Jenna recognized it as the same as the plant on the front cover of Elizabeth’s book.
