Carey Buls, a local gardener and volunteer at the Council nursery will
share her knowledge and skills with us. She has a keen interest in 
natives but still has time for vegetables and flowers. She will show us several 
different ways to plant seeds,   and share her ideas for creating more space using containers or even wheelbarrows.
