Today our new gap year volunteer Niamh starts her placement at the Briars residential centre! We're so excited for her. Here's Niamh: 
Hi! I applied for Step into the Gap because I am really interested in global justice and welfare. I want to learn about the different kinds of work CAFOD does all over the world, while inspiring young people and creating an exciting platform for Christian and Catholic youth to celebrate their faith.
I really look forward to the year ahead and the memories and friendships that will be made! 
Best of luck Niamh. Keep in touch with our new team of volunteers. Click the link in the bio and follow their blogs.

In honour of Science Week, we started off the day with a visit to the Briars Historic Homestead this morning. The children love looking at all of the animal bones expertly preserved, the taxidermy works of the full sized animals, spotting the short-finned eel in the tank or counting the turtles! It was a beautiful day for a walk so we headed up to visit the vegetable garden, pigs and chooks, and ended our excursion with some cloud watching (there weren’t very many!)

Guess what? We made it through to the voting stage of the Pick My Project grant to establish a Farmers’ Market in Mt Martha. We are super-duper excited, but now it’s up to you to VOTE.

Our dream is to host a monthly farmers’ market at The Briars to bring the community together to buy locally and support their local farmers, producers, small businesses, and markers. With an assortment of stalls selling freshly harvested vegetables and fruits, honey, bread, meat, sauces, oils, preserved goods, wine, cheeses, cut flowers and plants, and of course great coffee! We aim for this to be a #zerowaste event too. 
This idea has been brewing for a few years and now we have a chance to make it happen, but we need your support, please follow this link below and add your vote.

THANK YOU, WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT

Many beetles have a preferred host plant. They can be beneficial, assisting with the pollination of plants, the germination of seeds, also as the biological control agents of invasive weeds. What do you think this little guy is up to? Genus Altica Corrusca (pictured) congregating with his ‘buddies’ by the hundreds on the Acaena Novae-zelandiae (commonly known as Bidgee Widgee or Biddy-biddy) at The Briars today. So pretty.
