The 10th year of CWCN's Book Club will see another year of great titles and lively discussions. The book club began in 2014 and has been going strong ever since. Two hours of great conversation, lots of food for thought, lots of provision of information, and lots of laughter while not necessarily agreeing in debate. Everyone is welcome to our sessions. Please find out more about the books to be discussed in 2023 by viewing the flyer. .
Seed Propagation at CWCN
Our CWCN nursery is a busy and social hub. There is plenty to do from collecting seeds and setting them up for germination, from pricking out to potting on, from watering to general maintenance. There are training opportunities and fun-filled working bees. As you can see by the image of Pararistolochia praevenosa vines, we are an important part of CWCN's Bringing Back the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly to Brisbane's Inner West, a project made possible through Queensland Government's Community Sustainability Action Grant for threatened species. We raise the vines from seeds to ensure best success and required numbers. - If you have questions or would like to be involved please ring or text Henry on 0430 628 325.
The Great Outdoors in Brisbane's Inner West
Nothing beats working in the outdoors. It's benefitial to your mental and physical health, and can be an enjoyable time for an entire family. Weeds need to be attended to to make space for our native flora, and our wildlife movement corridors will need further repair to enhance our biodiversity. Participate in our many activities. Check out our page 'Get involved'and consider where you may want to help us restore our natural assets.
