Community Nursery Update 13 September 2021

The Apple Grafting workshop due for Wednesday 15 September has been cancelled for this year. The Jo Ogier workshop is on, with reduced numbers and Nursery Fridays are on with restricted numbers and prior bookings required.

If the covid level 2 continues we might look at additional times for volunteers as the Nursery work will increase through spring. If you want to help out in small groups of 2-3 contact me and I will see what might work on days which may be different to Fridays.

At Level 2 we are open by arrangement for plant sales – email Chris to arrange a time.

For those who are interested in the quizzes at last post I will post the answers next week, so you still have a week to hone your fungi and foraging ID skills!!

Many events have been cancelled lately but one that is going ahead tomorrow night (Tuesday 14 September) is an illustrated talk on working in Antarctica by Becky Goodsell – it will be in Hansen Hall at SIT so we can distance and starts at 7.30pm. Its free and all welcome

Spring is out there somewhere! A few images recently taken. If you are bush walking look out spider orchids (leaves about the size of a 10c coin and flat to the ground) and native clematis coming into flower soon and birds nesting (herons are nesting in our bush at the moment).

regards

Chris
