Event Description

Saturday March 12th
Making Sundials
Phillip Richards
Autumn is here and we are talking sundials this month. We welcome Phillip Richards back to the Gardens to give us a workshop on sundials. Phillip will give a talk about the technicalities and the different types of sundials. We will then go into workshop mode with groups making models of a couple of different types of sundials. Then we will return to seats and talk about fixing a sundial you may have; buying a sundial overseas; a sundial on the blue house (types of possibilities); and a possible public sundial in Yandina. Bring a scientific calculator if you have one! There will be a bit of mathematics involved. But don't let that frighten you!

Bookings are NOT required for any of these workshops unless specified.

All attendees at our Saturday activities will be asked to make a gold coin donation to the Gardens as a contribution to the overall running of the Gardens.

Workshops commence at 9:30 am unless otherwise specified and duration is approximately 1½ to 2 hours.

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.)
