We have a FANTASTIC event coming up 11am to 4pm on Saturday November 26 that you can’t afford to miss. At the OPEN DAY you’ll be able to learn about bush foods from our local area, see our new bush food garden and pick up a copy of our new bush food booklet.
You’ll also enjoy live music all day, a barbie and great coffee from Rough Diamond and meet our new chooks in their “Chook Hilton”. In the afternoon there’s a public dedication of our indigenous acknowledgement seat and a smoking ceremony.
There’s native, bush food and herb plant sales and an opportunity to learn about plans for the old quarry. Check out the flier for more details- we look forward to seeing you there! Gold coin entry, gates open at 10.30am, (cnr. Grieve St and Grafton Road)
Going Upstream was a terrific project helping people make the link between their water usage and our precious water resources. It included Journey Up the Gellibrand, produced by Bruce Campbell and featuring kayaker Christian Schultink. Pay a visit to our Fiona Golding-designed Garden shelter and you can see more including a fabulous sculpture by F Project’s Becky Nevin Berger. And click on the picture above for a shortish summary of the project.
