Pop Up movie night (27 March) and other events

Our first Pop-Up Movie will be shown today on 27 March, from 6:30 at the lane east off 36  Matlock Street  in Mt Hawthorn. Bring your own chairs and excess produce from your garden if you have any. Great movie about plastic that documents the journey of one guy who made a difference in his local community. View the trailer here.

Upcoming events:
The next City of Vincent Local Native Plant Sale will be on Sat 19 April from 8am to 11am, at the City of Vincent Leederville Administration Centre. http://www.vincent.wa.gov.au/Your_Community/Whats_On/Events/Events_2013/Local_Native_Plant_Sale
The City of Vincent is also running the Adopt a Verge Program where they perform the earthworks, supply and spread the mulch and give a voucher for twenty local native plants to people who want to change their verge to local natives. I can send our application to anyone who wants to use it as a template.
The next Kings Park Native Plants Sale is on 18 May.
  
We hope to see you tonight.
