Frahns Farm Planting Festival 2021

The 2021 Frahns Farm Planting Festival will be held in June, across 4 days.

Join our community

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 4 days in mid-late June 2021, 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! 🌿👩🏽‍🌾

Lunch

We are happy to announce that we are organising a catered lunch again this year for all our planting volunteers. Please notify us of any dietary requirements during the registration process and don’t forget to bring a plate, bowl, mug and cutlery. We’ll bring the washing-up station!

This year volunteers also have the option of offsetting the cost of their lunch so that Bio·R can direct as many funds to conservation activities as possible. Choose this option when you register, but please note that this is not counted as a donation and is therefore not tax-deductible.

More information

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 hand mattock / trowel for planting.

Bio·R 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!
