The Node (SOWN/BRAIN Newsletter) Autumn 2009

With the rains of recent times plants have been moving out of the nursery at an unprecendented rate, about 1000 a week. Come and get some for your site! If you have ripe fruit in your plantings, please collect it for propagation. We also need those wire trays, they are the best for shipping plants out. Nursery open Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. This edition of The Node has plenty of news about upcoming events, new pages on the site, the aftermath of storms and floods, and articles of interest.
