November General Meeting

Bushcare: New Sights/New Insights

As there is no AGM until early next year, we have a delightful guest speaker, Angie Michaelis. Angie is a horticulturist and previously worked with her husband at Sydney Wildflower Nursery West. She also did volunteer bushcare work at Riverstone. After moving, Angie continued bushcare at Balmain and on Shark Island, Sydney Harbour. How lucky we are because now, she has an even larger wealth of experience and knowledge on how best to maintain our beautiful Sydney bushland and beyond.

Angie will speak about 'Bushcare: New Sights/New Insights'. Some of us have enjoyed an excellent book of Angie's, called "Native Plants for your Garden: a Guide for the Cumberland Plain." Most informative!

Date: Saturday, 26th November at 2pm
Venue: Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook

The more the merrier, so do come along to our meeting and, by all means, bring friends.

How about learning to propagate native plants?

We have a small, hard-working, happy group of members who propagate once a month at the Bidjigal Community Nursery.

The Hills Shire Council kindly let us have the use of their facilities to do all sorts of interesting things, like propagating from cuttings and seeds and potting up successful seedlings and rooted cuttings. Plus, as the plants grow, we put them in larger pots until they are ready to plant.

You are welcome to join us to observe and join in when you are ready to have a go. It's quite easy once you get the hang of it. The nursery is such a lovely, peaceful place and we have a bench set aside for our pots. There is so much more to tell, so do come along some time and meet us!
