Spring is in the air!

Spring is definitely in the air and this newsletter's main story is inspired by a shopping trip to the Adelaide Showground Farmers Market and a drive out to a plant sale at the Kersbrook Landcare group's South Para Biodiversity Nursery on Sunday.

Spring is a time of regeneration and regrowth. Despite the rain we had last year and the mild summer we had this year, we still don't know what's ahead of us this summer. If you're wondering what to plant or where to start, then get in touch with your local landcare group.
