You are invited! – Upcoming free workshops hosted by the Cross-border Community Nursery
We have two exciting workshops coming up in the next few weeks which we would love you to be involved in!
How to Create a Butterfly Garden
Thursday, 20 November, 4-6pm
Community Nursery, Vansittart Park, Mount Gambier
Do you remember seeing more butterflies around when you were younger? Loss of habitat, particularly grasslands, has impacted heavily on these important and beautiful pollinators. Hear local experts Bryan Haywood and Yvonne Riley speak about why and how to attract butterflies to your garden. Learn how to design a native garden which is attractive to both people and pollinators!
Native Seed Collection and Camp-out at Eaglehawk Waterhole

Eaglehawk Waterhole Restoration Reserve, near Frances
Neville Bonney will guide us through different seed collection techniques, and assist us in determining the best time to harvest seed. A variety of species will be targeted on the day, and seed collected will go towards the restoration of the property.
If you have an interest in learning more about native plants, seed collection, or revegetation this workshop is for you! Meet at 10am at Nature Glenelg Trust’s Eaglehawk Waterhole Restoration Reserve, near Frances (directions provided upon registration).
Free event. BYO water and lunch, and wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Participants are encouraged to join us in camping overnight at Eaglehawk following the workshop; barbecue dinner provided (BYO camping gear).
