Working Bee #10 Successful

Another successful working bee - the 10th in this project series - was held on Saturday 11-Jun-2011.

It saw over 30 volunteers plant a total of 1,310 tube stock at the entrance to and along the eastern side of the road to the Wonthaggi Lifesaving Club.

 

This was the same site that was cleared of woody weeds and pine trees during Working Bee 8 - see image right.

At the top end of the site, a series of low shrubs and grasses whilst at the lower end, more coastal species were planted,  Species included Coastal Banksia (banksia integrifolia), Manna Gum (eucalyptus viminalis), Kidney-weed (dichondra repens) and Dusty Daisy Bush (olearia pholopappa).

It was a big challenge but in only three hours the thirty volunteers - with a wide range of ages - laid out the tube stock, dug the holes, planted the tube stock, as well as assembling and installing the 1,310 cardboard guards for the plants!

Some images from the day are in the slideshow below.
