Our next Monday Mornings in the Reserves outing will be on Monday 19th Oct. We will be meeting at 9am at the end of Strathfield Parade Croydon (Melways 50 E1) and working in the Cherry Tree Reserve (behind the Cherry Tree Retirement Village) along the Mullum Mullum Creek. This reserve has a mix of remnant, regeneration and revegetation areas and is a very popular walking track. All tools and morning tea will be provided please bring your own gloves.

We are currently collecting articles, photos and information relating to local environmental issues, activities or reflections for the next newsletter. If you would like to submit something to our editor please forward to Linda at

There are a lot of beautiful spring wildflowers blooming in our Sales Area at the moment. The purple flowers of the Patersonia and Dianella contrast well with the yellow of the Goodenias, Hibbertia, Bulbines and Chrysocephalum and the white of the Pimelia. These and more are all currently available in either tubes or 150mm pots.
