About this Event

Greater Sydney Landcare Network is offering a series of FREE workshops to help our community learn how to create habitat and cool our city through planting.

For our first workshop, we’re partnering up with The Habitat Nursery in Ryde with Bev Debrincat, Chair of the Greater Sydney Landcare Network and Coordinator of ‘The Habitat’ who will guide us around the community Nursery providing information on the history of the site, propagation techniques and chat about the habitat plants available at the nursery.

Bev will then guide us around Shrimpton’s Creek, a habitat corridor project, giving an overview of the works undertaken, the importance of small bird habitat as well as plant identification tips and discuss some of the challenges to ecological restoration in this corridor.

Please wear long sleeves, long pants, closed sturdy shoes, a hat / sunscreen and bring plenty of drinking water. Please also bring a keep cup/mug for morning tea.
