NOTE: New times of access – 10.00am to 4.00pm this Sunday – we hope to see you there.
The Friends will be at Glenthorne this Sunday and this past week’s weather will make your visit very memorable, with a forcast of a beautiful warm day for Sunday.
Just to be on the safe side, and if you still plan to brave the elements, please note the following:
We meet at the Majors Road gates just before 10.00am but if you are intending to come along a little later, the gates will be unlocked. Please make sure that you close the gates once you have entered.
Follow the road until you reach the large pine tree near the Old Barn and head right through, along the dirt track, where you will see our cars parked.
Otherwise, you are welcome instead to use the bitumen carpark (turn right at the large pine tree in the "middle" of the road)
Visitors are welcome and we are happy to show people around our revegetation sites and the heritage structures.
Please message or call Alan on 0411595910 as soon as possible to advise that you are coming along or we may be off down the water course when you arrive.
We usually have tea or coffee and a discussion of recent events from around 1.00 pm but must vacate the property at 4.00pm, under University of Adelaide rules.
If you are coming along, please respect the property and its wildlife and we hope you enjoy your visit.
If you haven't "Liked" us on our facebook page, then please do this here. This will really help spread the outreach of our "Save Glenthorne" campaign.
All you have to do is "Click" or "Touch" the "Thumbs Up" symbol. Easy, eh!
We need your help. We would be very pleased if you could download and print out this Petition (click the word Petition)and have your friends and family sign it.
There is an On-Line Petition at www.change.org/p/jay-weatherill-help-save-glenthorne-farm-for-the-people
Then return the filled out Petitions to FoG Secretary, Alan Burns, 22 Westall Way, Sheidow Park, 5158 or we will collect.
The Friends are stepping up their campaign to save Glenthorne given recent reports that the University of Adelaide is planning housing, shopping centre and more, all against the Deed of Sale and the contract signed in 2001.
In the lead up to the March 2018 State election we will be keeping you informed of our efforts to save the farm which, after 21 years of effort, is still vulnerable to being destroyed and replaced by housing and concrete.
We have many activities planned but some will need your support and involvement.
We need to show the State Government that we, as a Community, will not stand for any University or Government destroying what we have worked so hard to save and protect.
The Friends are not just wanting habitat restoration. We have exciting plans for Community access and activities which could include a largescale Nature Play playground for families, picnic areas, walking and cycling trails linked to other parks, natural burial sites, produce markets, tourism attractions and much, much more.
We are in the progress of updating our web site and will soon have an e-petition running.
Please download and sign our paper petition and we will advise more in the coming days.
We are working hard so that future generations can enjoy what we have taken for granted – until now.
The Friends’ "Glenthorne Farm Community Vision 2015" report can be downloaded here. (PDF format) – this document details the many and varied activities which we hope may one day soon be happening at the Farm.
A request from the Don Dunstan Foundation, Can you help them with a five minute survey?
Do you know a social enterprise we should put on the map?
In partnership with South Australian Centre for Economic Studies (SACES) we are trying to identify the social enterprises located or operating in South Australia. If you are connected to a social enterprise, perhaps manage it, work in it or support it as a volunteer, or if you just know a really great social enterprise - we want to hear from you.
"What's a Social Enterprise?" you might ask:
Social enterprises are for-profit or not-for-profit businesses that primarily seek to fulfil a public or community benefit, to provide benefits to members or to support the mission of a non-profit auspice.
Why is this information needed?
Simply put, the South Australian Social Enterprise community represent part of the fastest growing economic sector but they are quiet achievers. Creating academic research specific to South Australia will be one giant leap in our (and SA's) ability to better represent and service this community.
Data from the survey will also assist the Don Dunstan Foundation's project with key partners in the northern metropolitan region, working with social enterprises and other stakeholders to develop social procurement models for local employment.
To help us you can click this survey link - it only takes five minutes

Your contribution today is greatly appreciated.
If you have any queries about the contents of the survey please contact Andreas Cebulla (SACES) at: email@example.com.
