SOWN turns 25 years - History book launched on 24 March 2019
SOWN is celebrating its 25th year of caring for the Enoggera catchment in March 2019.
We commissioned ToadShow (Anne Jones and Rob Whyte) to produce a history of SOWN from 1994 to 2019. The history is available free below as an eBook.
The SOWN history book was launched on Sunday, 24 March at the Old Newmarket Bowls Club at Newmarket, close to some of the original SOWN plantings.
Over 100 long-term and new SOWN members and friends attended and the SOWN 25th Anniversary book was launched to great acclaim.
