Starting From Seed – Advanced Workshops
Nature Glenelg Trust together with The Department of Environment Water & Natural Resources is pleased to offer two field based seed collection workshops led by highly experienced seed collector & bush regenerator, Neville Bonney.
These Workshops will focus on understorey and harder to collect species like Hibbertias and Stylidiums and will be ideal for those who already have an understanding of seed collecting basics. We will be looking at about 40 different species.
The first Workshop will be held in the Honan’s Scrub area between Glencoe & Mount Gambier on the 30th of November. We will first meet at Carpenter Rocks Hall at 9:30 am before travelling out to the Honan’s Scrub area. Lunch will be provided at the Carpenter Rocks Hall. The day will finish at around 2:30 pm.
The second Workshop will be held in the Baghdad Scrub area near Robe on the 1st of December. We will first meet at the Mount Benson Community Hall at 9:30 before heading out to the Baghdad Scrub area. We will have lunch at the Mount Benson Community Hall and finish the Workshop at about 2:30 pm.
Participants in this Workshop have a unique the opportunity to receive accreditation in the Collect Seed Unit (FPIFGM2201B), which is part of the Certificate 2 & 3 of Conservation & Land Management & Horticulture. Successful accreditation in this qualification will require the completion of the Collect Seed Unit Assessment prior to attending and completing one of the Field Workshops. The Assessment is ‘open book’ and can be completed at home. Further information about this great opportunity can be obtained by contacting Joley Didwell on 87351455 or email:
