    Event description

    Are you interested in revegetating your bush block, rural property or suburban garden? Then come along to Nature Conservation Margaret River Region's Revegetating Your Property workshop. This workshop is back by popular demand and is part of our For Nature Landowner Stewardship Program, designed to help you give nature a helping hand at your place!

    At this in-depth, three-hour workshop from 10am-1pm on Sunday, June 5, you'll join Nature Conservation Margaret River Region revegetation expert Drew Mackenzie to learn the tools and know-how to revegetate your block. He'll analyse everything from identifying your objectives, designing a plan, when and how to plant successfully, what species to plant for particular soils and sites, planting density and structure, identifying and controlling weeds, and protecting your plants from pests like rabbits or wildlife including kangaroos, and why revegetating is so important.

    Then we'll take a walking tour of Nature Conservation Margaret River Region chair Dr Ann Ward's property on the banks of the Margaret River, to see first-hand how she's put these principles and techniques into practice. Anne has spent several years revegetating her bush block and has plenty of tips to share. Following our walk a light lunch will be provided. 

    Resources will also be available to participants including plant lists and books. 

    **PLUS there will be twelve $40 plant vouchers available to participants to spend on native plants from the Tube Nursery in Cowaramup!**

    Tickets are Free for Nature Conservation members otherwise please purchase a ticket for a small fee of $10. 

    Please note: no children under 18 or dogs are permitted. Participants will need to drive to Dr Ward's property, where both the workshop (under cover) and garden tour (outdoors) will take place. This event will proceed even if the weather is inclement - but come prepared with warm clothing, a raincoat and umbrella. Please also bring a notepad and pen to take notes, drinking water, and plenty of questions for our presenters!

    Participants must be registered with our For Nature Landholder Stewardship Program to take part in this workshop and garden tour. Registration is free and takes just a couple of minutes. And it comes with benefits like grants for conservation work at your place, free equipment hire, and access to loads of information and advice to give nature a hand at your place!

    The For Nature Landowner Stewardship Program is proudly supported by funding from the West Australian Government’s State Natural Resources Management Program, the Water Corporation and the Shire of Augusta Margaret River.
