7:00pm, Wednesday 19 July 2023: APS Sutherland monthly meeting.

An old Burrawang in a New Garden

Enjoy an illustrated talk by Sutherland Group member Ralph Cartwright about the history and ecology of a dinosaur plant, the Burrawang (Macrozamia communis). Ralph also shares his thoughts on reconstructing a garden after the builders have left, based on his recent experience at Engadine. He will finish with a story about another ancient plant, the Wollemi pine.

After the talk, we’ll have our plant table segment which showcases native plants in Shire gardens at this time of year. Bring along a specimen of your own and have it identified. For this month let’s try to emphasise Bush food plants you have growing in the Sutherland area. Feel free to accompany specimens by submitting photos for the newsletter.

Join us at our monthly meeting

Following the talk, we will have a raffle and supper.  

Join us  at 7:00pm (note this is a new start time).

Free – Visitors welcome. Gymea Community Hall, 39 Gymea Bay Rd, Gymea.
