Plant Sale Northern Yorke Peninsula 2 Good

There was plenty to see and do at the sale.
It was terrific to have a helping hand in setting up and packing away from Kadina Apex members.  Such heavy work is getting beyond some of the NYP group.
The group, however, was well able to cater for snacks in the canteen, and organised the raffle with lots of plant prizes donated by the stall holders. Kathlyn Fabian held several floral design workshops – her talent was well appreciated, but the photos didn’t work out. 
Aussie herbs and spices featured in the dukkhas on the spices stall, and the quandong pies from the tucker table were delicious.
The Natural Resource Management team gave useful advice on what introduced garden plants quickly turn into weeds and what to grow instead.
Plants currently flowering in our area made for a very interesting display, and it was good to see their botanical names.
And the little cockatiel that came to visit added a charming touch.
Hope everyone has got their plants into the ground cos the damp soil and rain will give them a good start. We’re planning to do it all again next year so more Aussie plants grow in our gardens and on our farms.
