Thanks to a group of awesome volunteers for our second very successful native plant sale.  A thousand indigenous wildflowers, trees, shrubs and ferns found new homes, and the sale ran very smoothly thanks to the hard work and co-operation of all the volunteers.  To the set-up crew, the cashiers, the customer assistants, and the clean-up brigade, our deepest appreciation.
