An urgent reminder to all friends and members: we have an important planting day next Sunday, June 21 on Mark Perry’s property at 69 Creasys Road.
We will be planting 1,500 seedlings in an area fenced by Mark. It will create a valuable habitat corridor connecting Chinaman’s Creek with woodlands on the upper slopes and is the last phase of our Chinaman’s Creek Project which must be acquitted by the end of June. Soil conditions are currently ideal and with a couple of showers forecast in the next week the timing should be perfect.
The planting process is well-organised and not onerous. We just need the numbers to ensure that we get these plants in the ground while conditions are favourable.
We plan to commence work at 11am and hope that the work will be complete by 4pm at the latest, depending on numbers. We will provide tea/coffee and a tasty vegetarian lunch at around 1pm.
We don’t expect everyone to commit for the whole day. If you can turn up for an hour or so that would be very valuable.
We do need to know if you can attend, especially if you plan to be there for lunch. Please let us know by return email or a reply to the blog by Wednesday, June 17.
The entrance to the property is close to the corner of Turners Lane/Creasys Road. Our banner will be displayed at the gate. Drive in the entrance and park in the area near the bus/sheds. From there you can walk across the creek to the planting site.
Bring solid boots, work gloves, suitable clothing for a cool day and raincoat just in case.
If you have any further queries ring me (Paul Hampton) at 0408 566 909.
We do hope you can make it.
