Working Bee 8 July 2017

 1707frontpageA big thanks to the 23 enthusiastic volunteers who made our first "planting" working bee for 2017 a huge success. We put in 370 locally indigenous plants ranging from grasses and ground covers to coast banksias which can grow to 10+ metres.

 Click on the title to read more and look at the photos.

 


We even had time to watch 3 majestic humpback whales making their way eastwards along the coast with a commentary by Geoff Glare.

Geoff also gave us a short but informative tour of nearby areas that the CPRRA had previously planted to show how well the plants grow. Very rewarding!

More planting in the adjacent area is planned for the August working bee.

See below for photos from the morning's activity.
