I will be leading two Pollinator Link Workshops at the B4C (Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee) Sustainability Centre, cnr. Wright Street & Old Cleveland Road, Carindale.
Workshop Dates: Wednesday 31 October and Saturday 3 November
Join me and B4C volunteers building a mico-habitat: a piece of bushland in fifty square metres. Much of the material to be used to build the habitat is the sort of stuff that you might normally take to the dump.
An old cast-iron bathtub becomes a High Pond suited to frogs that can climb like Green Tree Frogs. Bamboo becomes a backyard bee home for native Leafcutter and Resin Bees while an old white ant eaten railway retain wall becomes lizard habitat as well as allowing garden areas to be mounded to create interest.
This garden will be part of the Pollinator Link between Belmont Hills and Bulimba Creek.
