July Members Meeting, Awards and Wire Trays
Members Meeting 19 July 10:30am Yoorala St, The Gap
It on again! Our guest speaker is Sandy Pollock from the Queensland Herbarium (TBC) who will be telling us about Three Mile Creek in the Enoggera Catchment. Dick Harding and myself recently saw this talk at the Brisbane Historical Society and it's a beauty. If want to find out where this place was you will have to attend the members meeting and Sandy will solve this mystery.
Please bring your friends a small plate to share
SOWN takes the top prize in the Healthy Water Ways awards
SOWN won the Ministers prize of $10,000, and also won the "Community" award of $250 along with two trophies. The Ministers Prize was awarded for a joint project with the Arthur Gorrie Correction Centre (AGCC) and was nominated by the All Saints Anglican School. You may see the initials AGCC around the place, this is part of a project that sees the Correctional Centre Inmates growing plants at Wacol in cooperation with SOWN. The plants are then handed to SOWN and other outside organisations for distribution and catchment planting. This project is a mutual benefit to SOWN and the Inmates at Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre.
Urgent! Please return any wire trays to the nursery.
Once again the number of wire trays, that hold tube stock, is getting very low at the nursery. If you have any of these trays in your possession, it would be most appreciated if you return these to the nursery ASAP.
Membership Fees are due now.
