Second SOWN Community Planting at Yoorala Street
Our first community planting in April was very successful but there is more planting to be done. So if you missed the first one, or if you came, please come to this second planting. Community and SOWN members of all ages are welcome.

Date: Sunday 29 May, 8.00 am to 11.00 am.

Location: Yoorala Street, The Gap. The entrance is opposite 131 Yoorala Street, then through the park across Fursman's Crossing and turn right to the restoration site.

Leo will again be putting on a cooked brunch after the planting. So what could be better on a crisp Autumn Sunday morning? - some exercise, restoring the local environment and a healthy brunch!

For more information contact Leo Lee on 0409 536 533.


'This Week by the Creek' May Newsletter
The attached 'This Week by the Creek' May newsletter is from the Brisbane City Council Creek Catchment Team.

It includes coming events and training and funding opportunities for catchment groups.

If you want to follow up on items, please contact the relevant groups or the BCC Creek Catchment Team. See BCC contact details at the end of the newsletter. 

Please return your wire trays
If you have any wire trays and you can return them to the SOWN nursery, please do so asap.

This is a recurring problem and failure to return these trays impedes our capacity to grow plants and to supply them to you.

Trays can be left at the nursery gate at any time, they will be cleared by nursery volunteers throughout the week. Please help us to help you. We could buy more trays by implementing a deposit scheme, but this would be an unnecessary inconvenience to you and the nursery volunteers.

How much fun can you have on a Saturday morning?
We need more volunteers to help staff the SOWN Plant Nursery on a Saturday morning. It's only for two hours every couple of months and it's a seriously great place to hang out amongst the plants.
