Change of speaker at our meeting
We are grateful to have a very versatile member who like most of us appreciates the birds that our native trees and plants bring to our gardens. Lesley Waite has a great deal of knowledge that she will share with us about 'Bringing Small Birds Back to Your Garden'. Now, isn't that a terrific topic?
Marilyn Cross will lead an activity associated with Bush Tucker. It would be great if you could bring something that you have prepared in the way of Bush Tucker or something related to it. But even if you don't have anything both members and visitors are always welcome.

Venue: Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook, NSW
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!
