Join the Society for Kimberley Indigenous Plants and Animals (SKIPA) as a new volunteer or old friend to come together to see the progress of the trees planted in 2022, and to walk around the gardens to see what is in flower and seed. This is SKIPA's first gathering for 2023 and a great time to come along, meet like-minded people, and join in the conservation, protection and celebration of Kimberley flora and fauna.
We will also have a go at direct seeding the laterite mound with annuals and chat about some opportunities to grow tube stock for landscape projects.
Please bring gloves, a spade, a hat, water and a plate to share.
