SOWN Enoggera Catchment Planning
Last year SOWN looked back over 25 years of our history and activities in caring for the Enoggera Catchment. This year we are looking ahead to develop plans and identify actions for the future.
SOWN has commenced the preparation of an Enoggera Catchment Plan which will look at threats and opportunities for the catchment over the next 10 years. The plan will identify policies and priority actions for SOWN.
Over the next few months, we will be collecting and mapping new information about the catchment and consulting our members, partner organisations and the general community about what should be in the plan. Look out for more information and workshops and how to get involved.

BUSHCARE IS BACK and SOWN NURSERY IS OPEN!
From 16 May, things are starting to get back to normal in the world of bushcare and SOWN.
BCC has allowed bushcare and Habitat groups to recommence working along the creeks in groups of up to 10 people.
SOWN nursery has also reopened on Wednesdays and Saturday mornings for member self selection of plants. There will be a maximum of 20 people in the nursery at any time, including volunteers, and other entry protocols.
SOWN Nursery - Opening Protocols
The SOWN nursery is now 'open' again and, in line with the current COVID-19 directions, we have put in place some opening protocols. These are intended to protect our volunteers, many of whom are over 70 years old, and our members.
The protocols are as follows:
* Volunteers to wipe down the bench and sink with bleach before opening;
* Everyone to sanitise or wash their hands on entry;
* Maximum of 10 members and 10 volunteers in the nursery at any time;
* Gloves available;
* Keep social distance (1.5m) at all times.
Please enjoy selecting your own plants again.
A special thanks to our volunteers who have kept the nursery operating and the online orders flowing during our closure period.
