Bassett Creek Planting Day

Thanks to all the volunteers of Muckleford Landcare that came out on a terribly cold and raining (and hailing) day to plant along the Bassett Creek, as part of our Bassett Creek Restoration Project Stage 2 as funded by NCCMA.

This planting, when grown, is going to connect up to plantings that were done on the creek ten years ago (also funded by NCCMA). This is part of the plan to improve the overall health of the Bassett. Thanks also to the landholders whose land we planted on, and who are also interested in improving habitat health in this area.

(Thanks to Albert Wright for the photos, and Eleanor for the cakes)

    And thanks to Beth for the super friendly, casual organisation of it all!

    Great job everyone!! I hope to be up and about soon and back to planting. Only 4 weeks since my foot op but it feels like an eternity. Painful and extremely boring. See you at the next event.
