Woodend Landcare has organized to pay a visit to a large wholesale native plant nursery located just north of Melbourne Airport and you are welcome to come along.
The nursery is owned by well know Landcarer and Australian Plant guru, Ian Taylor and is called Western Plains Flora.
The visit is planned for Sunday morning 1st April, departing Woodend at 9AM. Ian will provide morning tea and will give us a tour of his large establishment. He may also be able to open the small retail section of his nursery too.
It is anticipated that the tour of the nursery, morning tea and a talk with Ian would take about 2 hours. So we may consider a BBQ or picnic lunch afterwards or visit a suitable place for a light lunch on the way home. The plan is for a small car convoy.
The date is easy to remember – APRIL FOOLS DAY.
I would like to get an idea of numbers please, so let me know if you are thinking of coming by emailing: pandaY@bigpond.com.au.
Cheers, Peter Yates
PS. Please note: our 2012 Calendar has been revised due to Woodend Landcare’s success with significant funding for further weed removal along Five Mile Creek (including the last remaining willows near Tenneson St). Well done Peter and Kate who wrote the application! Click here to view the updated calendar.
