All planned activities for this program are now postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We appreciate your understanding during this unprecedent period.
A new program will be announced as soon as we are able.
As a result of our partnership with the District Council of Yankalilla, the NRM Board and Conservation Volunteers Australia (funded by a grant from SA Health), we have about 15,000 local native plants growing at the Nursery and these will be ready to plant throughout the district in the coming months. They have been propagated and grown by a mix of local volunteers and CVA volunteers in the expanded the number of days each month that the Nursery is now open. Our small group of volunteers continue to benefit from the expertise of the on-site CVA Conservation Officer and have learnt some new skills along the way.
We are in need of some additional local volunteers to help on the increased number of Planting Days at selected locations in the district, this year!
We have planned a number of Field Trips where you can increase your knowledge and/or help maintain previous planting areas. These are all possible with the support and organisation from Conservation Volunteers Australia.
The attached Calendar highlights the planned field trips and planting days that we will undertake across the district, each month up until the end of June.
The latest event, just added to the Calendar, is a trip to the Hindmarsh Island Nursery on Wednesday 25th March to get some tips on how we can sustain our nursery into the future.
We are looking for some additional Volunteers to join our current crew and help make a difference to the natural environment within our district - if you have a few spare hours and can come along to help, just let us know and then turn up at the Nursery on the day!
This is all part of the "Greening The Fleurieu Coast" program and offers exciting and educational opportunities for anyone interested in our environment to come along and participate in every aspect of producing native plants for use in local re-vegetation projects (and then planting them). Along the way, we will visit some interesting places to help develop our Community Nursery into a key provider of plants for the local area.
IF YOU CAN SPARE A COUPLE OF HOURS (or more), anytime between 9.30am and 3.00pm on any of the dates in the Calendar, we would love to see you there!
The Calendar has all the details to help you plan ahead, book in and come along.
Happy to discuss any thoughts!
