It's pretty easy to find and the parking is ok. Pretty much the first commercial buildings on your right as you come up to the shopping centre on your left. But, you're not going, so it's moot.

I see the address now. I wasn't going; can't imagine the hassle of parking never mind finding the place with an address on Gympie Road!

Would be wonderful to get along to this but am now working again, so impossible.

Did you see that the Chermside Library has moved Elaine?

Totally chuffed to have planted trees with Ross and his family at the Belmont Rifle Range, prior to the Brisbane Commonwealth Games. I had no idea at the time that he was an up and coming horticulturalist.

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.
