Hi All

 We are beginning a new initiative starting this Monday – October 21st. We will be meeting in one of the reserves in the local area to work on bushland regeneration activities. The work will initially involve gentle hand weeding around some of the remnant vegetation and will be followed up with some re-vegetation. We will be working with Maroondah City Council Bushland team in identifying, protecting and enhancing some of the valuable local vegetation communities.

 The first session will be held at Heathmont Reserve (Enter via Waterloo St Melway 63 J1) 9am – 12pm. Tools and morning tea will be provided, bring your own gloves. As this work will be outdoors in the bushland please have sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.

These sessions will run if there is light rain however, if there’s lightning, high winds and hail they will need to be cancelled. If you would like to join us please let us know by return email. At this stage we are looking to hold these sessions fortnightly, if you would like to be added to the ‘reminder email list’ please let us know.

 Newsletter – we are now collecting articles for our November Newsletter if you have anything that you would like to submit for the newsletter, it needs to be emailed to Linda lhibbs@ihug.com.au by October 30th

 Christmas Party – save the date – This year our Christmas Party will be held at the nursery to celebrate our 20 years of operating on this site. It will be on Saturday December 7th from 12 noon. Further details will be available closer to the date.

 CRISP T-Shirts – The committee of CRISP have been working on a Polo/T-shirt for supporters of the nursery – a copy of the design and size chart will be available at the nursery over the next week. The initial print run will take place in Early November and the cost will be approx $10 – if you would like to see a design of the T-Shirt and the sizing please contact us and we will forward the details.

Our sales area is still well stocked with lots of plants that have spring flowers on display. Our opening times are below. Please note all sales are cash only.
