Working Bee “Enjoyment Day” Functions

To control weeds and assist in the re-vegetation efforts
To support each other as local volunteers
To know the features of the property and identify its vegetation types
Bird identification, seed collection and heritage protection

Or just come along for whatever peaceful reason to simply enjoy the friendship of our wonderful group and one of the most precious places in the southern suburbs. We encourage the curious, walkers, people who like to read books under the shade of trees, those who like to meditate……and as long as the activity is friendly to the farm and safe for those participating, you are welcome.

“Weekend Notes” A recent visitor to Glenthorne on one of our Enjoyment Days took some great photos.  To view them, see the “Weekend Notes” article here  (This is an excellent website for things to do, and up-coming events), or view the same article but in PDF format.
