Native Bees in Your Backyard
Sep 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

An introduction to native bees and how to attract these pollinators to your garden

Join Jenny Deans for this family-friendly workshop to learn more about the special role of our native bees. Discover:

– what native bees look like, and where they live
– the importance of native bees in our environment
– how to make a bee hotel
– how to create a bee garden to attract native bees
– how to care for our native bees

All participants will have the opportunity to make their own bee hotel to take home and receive a ‘bee restaurant’ pack of native plants to plant in their own garden.

Jenny Deans from Cosmophylla Garden Services and Advice is a passionate gardener and landcarer with a love for exploring the wonders of the natural world with children. She has run native bee workshops at Stirling’s Old School Community Garden and the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden.

$25 includes one bee hotel and a selection of plants to start your very own bee restaurant.

Note: If you are bringing along family members, you will only need to purchase one ticket if you plan to build one bee hotel together. If you would like to make more than one hotel, purchase a ticket for each hotel you wish to make.

The Adelaide Sustainability Centre is supported by the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board and ConservationSA.

Take a step back in time, and join SteamRanger Heritage Railway for a unique evening, filled with fun, old-world charm and quality food and wine from some of the state’s premier food and wine districts.

Join us for the inaugural journey of our new premium dining experience train – ‘The Fleurieu Explorer’.

Travel in the opulent comfort of our rarely used 1907-built Melbourne Express sleeping car ‘Finniss’, or our 1930’s-built first-class steel cars, all of which feature rich timber paneling, comfortable leather seating and individual compartments, just perfect for family or social groups.

Departing Mt Barker in the late afternoon, enjoy a range of local wines, beer or soft drink and taste some superb local produce provided by Goolwa’s 90 Mile Wines. Sit back, as our train winds its way through the Southern Mt Lofty Ranges, passing towering gums and mobs of Kangaroos to Strathalbyn.

After a brief pause at Strathalbyn, the train will be off again, this time passing through grain crops and mallee scrub, through the hamlet of Finniss, across the towering Currency Creek Bridge, and onto the historic river port of Goolwa.

At Goolwa, transfer to a road coach for a gourmet meal at the One Paddock Currency Creek Winery, showcasing the best of the Fleurieu Peninsula’s food and wine, before returning to Goolwa, where your train will be waiting to return you to Mt Barker.

But hurry, seats are strictly limited to 80 places, and this service is guaranteed to sell out fast!

Fare: $199 per person
