We’re going ahead with our biggest Planting Festival yet and you’re invited!

Not even COVID will stop us! We’re going ahead with this year’s planting, but doing things a little differently!

Once again, 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, near Monarto.

This year’s altered festival will take place over 10 planting days, during which we’ll put nearly 25,000 native plants in the ground! That’s five times as many as our last biggest planting event in 2019…!


To get everything planted, we’re estimating each adult will need to plant around 100 plants for each day they attend. This doesn’t include the little tackers though, everyone will be happy just to see them throwing dirt around on the day ?
We can’t wait to be outside and get our hands in the dirt either ???‍?


To abide by COVID social distancing restrictions, only 20 participants can take part each day. We will also be staggering arrival times to reduce the number of people gathered at any point during the day. Therefore, you’ll need to register for whichever day (or days!) you would like to come.

? Planting dates are all in June:

13-14: Sat-Sun
16-17: Tues-Weds
20-21: Sat-Sun
23-24: Tues-Weds
27-28: Sat-Sun


More to come:
We’ll send out more information shortly, but this year please be prepared to bring your own lunch, appropriate clothing, tools and safety gear.

We’re sure it will be a satisfying few weeks for all involved and can’t wait see you there!
