Our Next Meeting Guest Speaker: Deidrie Jinks
Date: 24 June, 2017
Time: 2.00pm
Venue: Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook.

Would you like to know more about rainforest plants? Then come along and hear Deidrie Jinks from the Sydney Rainforest Nursery. Deidrie will be showing and speaking about local rainforest plants.

"The nursery has a focus on local diversity and propagates from local sources."

Deidrie has a wealth of knowledge to share regarding this topic. She also teaches conservation and land management at TAFE.

All are very welcome.

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!
