Event: Frahns Farm Planting Festival 2022

Our Frahns Farm Planting Festival is back again in 2022, and will be our biggest event yet!

We’re looking forward to spending a day outdoors with you, giving something back to nature and having fun whilst we’re at it.

Register a spot, plant your plants…

Bio·R, Landscape SA – Murraylands and Riverland and many enthusiastic volunteers (including you!), will be coming together over 6 days in mid-late June 2022, to plant habitat for wildlife as part of our exciting restoration initiative at Frahns Farm.

We can’t wait to be outside and get our hands in the dirt either!

Directions:

If coming from Adelaide, take the S.E. Freeway for approximately 35 minutes. Take the exit to Callington/Strathalbyn. Turn right onto Callington Rd, pass through the town then turn right onto Old Princes Rd at the t-junction. Follow this road for 2.9 km uphill then take the left onto Browns Rd (dirt road, avoid the sharp left onto Highlands Rd). Follow this road for 3.3 km, turning left onto Frahns Farm Rd at the first intersection, then left again after 350 m onto Wattle Rd. Follow this road for 2.2 km. Lookout for the large overland water pipe, electricity lines and BioR flag at the road. At this point enter the gate on your right and follow the track along the water pipe until you see cars parked on either side. Join us here!
