From Marsupials to Plantings to Butterflies

October should be renamed ‘Chocktober’ with all the events SOWN have planned.

First up is Martin Fingland presenting a marsupial talk (and live animal display) for SOWN members and their families on the evening of Thursday 12th October. Come along and see the ‘warm fuzzys’ of the Enoggera Creek Catchment and further afield.

We have a tool sharpener at the SOWN nursery to sharpen your working bee tools. Full details below.

This is followed by a planting and weeding event at Banks Street Reserve, on Sunday 15th October.

Last but not least, we have the Inaugural SOWN Butterfly Festival on Sunday the 29th October. If you thought our raspberry festival was fun, this will be even better!
