Energy overflows at planting day

The energy, teamwork and camaraderie at the first community planting day was amazing as a troop of close to 60 volunteers managed to plant and water-in more than 750 shrubs across four plots.

Stunning weather, fresh air and soft soil made for perfect planting conditions as people of all ages hoed into the challenge of restoring a patchy shrub layer in Ginninderra’s Box Gum Grassy Woodlands.

Special mention goes to our youngest planters – the Wells Station Cub-pack who set a fine example of teamwork and commitment to the future biodiversity of our woodlands.

Great coffee and a tasty barbecue lunch added to the enjoyment of the day and the good news is: ‘it’s on again this Sunday’.

We will focus our efforts on a different site of 4.5 hectares close to the Barton Highway near Hall.

If you would like to be part of the planting action on Sunday 28 May please register without delay or by 4pm Friday 26 May at the latest. You can register here or by calling 1300 363 400.
