Interested in finding out how to draw native flowers?

At our next meeting we will watch a botanical artist demonstrate how this is done. Jane Mulholland will show us how to draw a flower and perhaps its habitat.

Because we love native plants, it will be fascinating to watch, as well as a hands-on experience. We are all in the "same boat", trying something new, and what fun it will be.

As a reward, we will also have a delightful afternoon tea. So, why not join us for a pleasant afternoon?

When: Saturday 25th June at 2pm.
Where: Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook
What to bring:

  • Some drawing paper on a clipboard or similar, or a sketch book
  • A soft pencil such as 3B, 4B or 6B
  • A soft eraser, a pencil sharpener
  • Optional: coloured pencils

Please do not stay away if you don't like drawing, as we need you to provide the laughs!

How about learning to propagate native plants?

We have a small, hard-working, happy group of members who propagate once a month at the Bidjigal Nursery.

The Hills Shire Council kindly let us have the use of their facilities to do all sorts of interesting things, like propagating from cuttings and seeds and potting up successful seedlings and rooted cuttings. Plus, as the plants grow, we put them in larger pots until they are ready to plant.

You are welcome to join us to observe and join in when you are ready to have a go. It's quite easy once you get the hang of it. The nursery is such a lovely, peaceful place and we have a bench set aside for our pots. There is so much more to tell, so do come along some time and meet us!
