Workshops 2020

These popular workshops are being held again. Covid restrictions are still in place and numbers are limited (currently 20), so please register if you wish to attend: Barbara Lanskey (ph 4091 4468) or Trish Forsyth (mob 0417 913 694). Both workshops are free and open to anyone. Social distancing will be observed.

Tree identification and seed propagation workshop

Dinah Hansman will again be presenting the tree identification session and Peter Snodgrass the seed propagation session. Dinah brings along various tree branches to show how to identify a tree species by examining its leaf features. Peter shows the different types of seeds and fruits and the best ways to germinate and grow them.

The workshop is held in two sessions with a tea/coffee break in between. The workshop is scheduled to finish at 12.30pm.

Revegetation workshop

This workshop is held at Freemans Forest Nature Refuge where hole digging and planting can be demonstrated. An information session is held first, to talk about what is involved in site preparation, planting and maintenance of a planting site. Mark and Angela McCaffrey and Peter Snodgrass share their knowledge and extensive experience and notes are handed out. There is a break after the information session, then at an appropriate area, augers are used to dig holes and trees are planted, to give participants hands-on experience. The workshop usually finishes about midday. Freemans Forest NR is on Cutler Road off Lake Barrine Road.
