Bus trip to native nursery
GLENRAC is offering people from Glen Innes the opportunity to visit Mole Station Native Nursery on Friday the 14th of August. Owners Sarah and David Caldwell will give a tour and explain how a commercial nursery operates.
Situated 42kms west of Tenterfield, the 250,000 plant capacity nursery specialises in the production of frost-hardy native shrubs and farm trees. Mole Station itself is a 2915 hectare working sheep and cattle property.
During the trip Sarah and David will show you plants at all growth stages, including seedling and cutting grown plants, and will answer questions on planting and maintaining native plants. The nursery is currently growing native tree seedlings for GLENRAC’s 2015 revegetation projects, and these will be able to be viewed during the trip. The day will also include the opportunity to learn how to take your own cuttings.
The trip will cost $20 per person, and will include morning tea and lunch. The bus will leave the GLENRAC office at 8:30am and return at approximately 4:00pm. Please pay and RSVP by Monday the 10th of August at http://tks.im/mole-station.
This event is sponsored by the Norman Wettenhall Foundation, and the National Landcare Programme.
