This is a Motherís Day high tea with a difference
I recently attended a two hour workshop at the Redlands IndigiScapes Centre, Redland City Council's environmental education centre. The botanic gardens feature only plants locally native to the Redlands area, many of which are grown at the on-site nursery. This nursery also plays a significant role in propagating local native plant stock for Redland City Council's conservation plantings across the Redlands Coast and is open to the public for sales. See here.
The workshop focussed on attracting native and stingless bees to gardens and was delivered by the very knowledgable Linda Brennan. Specialising in eco-education, horticulture design, permaculture and organic agriculture, Linda has a wealth of information at her fingertips. This workshop was hands-on and attendees gained from Linda's knowledge of flowering plants and bees. More importantly, I have been inspired to plant more natives in my garden for this purpose.
