In 2006 SOWN ran two projects, the Talking Creeks Oral History Project and SOWN TV. Both drew on the knowledge of members to tell the stories of rehabilitating the creeks in Enoggera catchment.
SOWN TV is a series of short videos (max 5min each) on bushcare topics. Please see the list of topics and links to the videos below on this page.
Our crews have included Anne Jones, Matti and Mark Crocker and Robert Whyte. Presenters and talent have included Melinda Mclean, Dr Kev Warburton with special thanks to Dr Don Sands, Kevin and Beth Kyte, and Vera Moffett.
Talking Creeks Oral History
Talking Creeks is an oral history of SOWN on video. Dee Martin asked 16 volunteers how and why they became involved in SOWN. Please click on the photo below to see and hear people’s stories.
