Event Description

The Yeronga Bushcare Group (Habitat Brisbane) is restoring native habitat along the Brisbane River. So far, around 500 plants have been planted. Our next working bee is about establishing a butterfly habitat and how to encourage butterflies to this area and suburban gardens, including the value of butterflies, practical tips and advice, a short, guided walk of the riverbank area, and planting species to attract butterflies.

Guest speaker: Helen Schwencke is an expert on establishing gardens for our native butterflies in backyards and in bushland.

If it wasn't my Cheesemaking weekend I would have loved to attend your morning. I am very interested in both the restoring of habitat and attracting Butterflies to my garden.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
