Being an active member of Mount Gravatt Environment Group I was asked to create some colouring in sheets for an upcoming workshop at Mount Gravatt Library on the exciting new ‘Pollinator Link’ initiative. Pollinator Link is focused on people planting native vegetation in their backyards in order for pollinators (birds, butterflies and bees) to move […]
