Here we go again, this time for our biggest Frahns Farm Planting Festival yet!
You’ve been waiting a whole year to spend a day outdoors, give something back to nature and have fun whilst you’re at it, right? BioR, Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basin and many enthusiastic volunteers (including you!) will be coming together to plant habitat for wildlife as part of our exciting restoration initiative at Frahns Farm on Saturday the 23rd of June 2019.
There will also be the opportunity to get involved in the installation of nest boxes that provide homes for a variety of hollow-nesting animals. This also forms part of a research project that BioR runs with the University of Adelaide. Sign-ups on the day.
Our renowned caterers will be back again, providing delcious and nurtritious morning tea, lunch and snacks throughout the day. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements during the RSVP process. Following on from last year’s successful trial, we’re asking you to bring your own plates, cups and cutlery in an effort to reduce waste. We’ll provide the washing-up station!
Be sure to bring some sun, rain or wind protection (depending on the weather, perhaps all three!), and if you have them, some gloves, rubber boots and a trowel for planting.
BioR will also have merchandise available, including badges, puzzles, cards and KeepCups. Proceeds from these sales help with the costs of our revegetation work, so please consider taking a gift home with you to support our work for wildlife.
You’ll also get the opportunity to learn about how your efforts on the day will be directly helping local wildlife in the context of Adelaide’s surrounding ecology.
Meet like-minded people, get involved in some positive environmental action and have fun!
We can’t wait to see you there!
