Friday 22nd June was not the best weather for Landcare Australia’s ‘Challenge’ in the Park. Cold, wet and windy conditions for much of the day did not however daunt the fabulous team of over 50 corporate, 10 Landcare and 10 Friends volunteer workers. They moved and spread mountains of mulch, planted about 950 seedlings and cut and stacked huge piles of invasive and non-locally indigenous shrubs, ready for the chipper. It is amazing to see what can be achieved with such people-power!
We can’t remember the oval area ever being so wet but Landcare Australia were well prepared with a marquee and the Friends’ fire was good for warming up during breaks.
Our thanks go to event sponsor:
and corporate supporters:
And a big thanks to our ever ready Friends crew – Tony, George, Lecki, Malcolm, Ruth, Lisa, Phillip, Zig, Shane and Rob who took on the preparatory work – organising plants and equipment – and supervised and made sure all was done safely and well, again…..
