Annual General MeetingThursday 28th at the Unley Community Centre, 18 Arthur St, Unley, 7.30pm.
And member, John Murphy talks about Revegetation techniques and erosion control.

COOTS

Sunday 10th March 2019 – having this additional Seed Sowing Day seems to make good sense, because many species prefer this time of year to be planted, so that will then complete the 2017 sowing. Again we will piggy back our Seed Sowing Day with the Cape Jervis Coastal Community Group, if they intend to plant any species, because they too may wish to experiment with species that prefer this time of year as well.

Saturday 30th March 2019 is Project Pine Point.
Note now the difference. We will head over to the project for just the one day this year, and carry out general maintenance. It generally is hot at this time of year, so we will assess the work done to date, look at areas that need work or planting done, and possibly carry out some weed removal.

(CJCCG) Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June 2019 – The Cape Jervis Coastal Community Group will be having a working bee (planting days) at their site near the ferry terminal at Cape Jervis, and all are welcome to join in the activities at their site. Please contact Carolyn Schultz for further details on 0448 909 881.

Saturday 8th June 2019 – Birthday celebrations for COOTS volunteer John Edmeades and any others who are fortunate to be having a birthday at this time of year. It will be held at my property Sandalwoods, and will also be an opportunity to view my plantings progress as well. Camping over the weekend may be considered for some? Maybe this date could be shared on social media, so that others can come and visit.

Saturday 29th June 2019 is Project Lands End. This also is a possible time of year where if conditions are right, we may spend a few days on site, especially if the ground is moist and we are able to do plantings. Remember it all depends on conditions at the time. I will inform everyone prior to going to the site of my intended stay at the project.

General MeetingThursday 25th July  at the Unley Community Centre, 18 Arthur St, Unley, 7.30pm.
Tanya Milne: Topic to be announced."

Saturday 27th July 2019 is Project Pine Point. This is a possible time of year where if conditions are right, we may spend a few days on site, especially if the ground is moist and we are able to do plantings. Although July may well be drying off, so would be unwise to plant if that is the case. Still only the one day at this stage, although that could change, but I shall inform everyone if there is a change, and I intend to stay for a few days.
