Border Landcare Organic Group –Activity Guide for 2019
Can you help?
If you are wondering why we have not sent an Activities Guide for 2019 it’s because the Steering Committee is having quite a difficult time planning our program for 2019.The usually generous response to requests for a visit from BLOG is of course impacted by the current dire situation for many producers- bushfires and the drought have resulted in several planned outings for the year being cancelled or postponed indefinitely. So, we would welcome your ideas for outings in the Stanthorpe to Tenterfield area. You can let us know at Glenrock Gardens or send an email email@example.com
Member input is always appreciated.
