Expansion of the beautiful planting done by Pete's Hobby Nursery due to a generous donation 💕 one way to show your love for the BVRT
Wonderful to see the overstorey trees being planted alongside the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail by Pete's Hobby Nursery in Lowood, in the first stage of creating a dry vine forest ecosystem - with flora species akin to those found in pockets of remnant Pine Mountain & Rosewood Dry Vine Scrub! 🌿 This extension of Pete's native plant gardens along the Trail is along the northern end of the BVRT from Lowood, heading towards Clarendon, & is envisaged to expand even further north along the Trail over the next few years. Thanks to the generous donation of $16,000 to Pete's Hobby Nursery a while back by a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous to the general public, we are seeing the restoration of variants of lost, rare scrub & forest ecosystems along our very own Rail Trail by Pete & his volunteers. What a wonderful legacy! ... See more
A damp day in Yarraman hasn’t stopped rail trailers heading out for a day on the trail. Enjoy the ride guys 🌈
Special thanks to Lyle Paul for helping to arrange the display for our local historical society
Just arrived from 1898! Out There Cycling proprietors, Josie and David have generously provided a display for our July MARKET. On show there'll be a Stearns Chainless bicycle, a conveyance that was manufactured in New York before the turn of the century by Edward Carl Stearns. The liberated lady cyclist of the day was encouraged to dress in attire to suit the activity and cut a fashionable form while getting exercise, travelling and socialising. Mr Stearns was a whizz at promoting his product. Advertising men performed many stunts, poems were recited, songs written and sung, all advertising bicycles in general and the Yellow Fellow model in particular. Slogans: · "Ride a 'Stearns' and be content." · "Where'er one turns, He finds a Stearns." · "Watch the sunlight glisten on those orange rims." · "The way to do it is to do it on a 'Stearns.'" · "A Stearns once tried, A Stearns you'll ride." · "Style - Speed - Strength." · "Rough roads made smooth." made the "Yellow Fellow" a household name. Drop into the Saturday morning market, see the Stearns Chainless, say g'day to Jessie who'll be wearing the outfit of the smart cyclist of that era .... and support your local museum. ... See more
