Community garden signs at Perth City Farm
Video from Gavin Hardy, Community Garden Australia’s Queensland Community Garden Coordinator.
GAVIN HARDY takes us into Perth City Farm to demonstrate the importance of signs.
Gavin shows us two types of signage:
- wayfinding — where to find features and installations on the farm
- interpretive — educational signage informing people about some feature or plant.
He shows us how well-designed signs are economical with words are made readable by the use of contrasting colours and sufficiently-large lettering.
Gavin also shows a raised garden and how a mural improves the ambience of the city farm.
