  • 12:00pm onwards – Staggered lunch
  • 1:00pm onwards – Staggered afternoon planting session
  • 3:00pm – Afternoon tea
  • 3:30pm – Tour (optional)

  • Clothing suitable for variable weather conditions (consider sun, wind and rain)
  • Footwear suitable for wet, muddy conditions (work boots, gumboots etc.)
  • Gardening gloves for planting
  • Hand mattock/trowel
  • Water bottle
  • Cutlery/bowl/plate/mug
