Richmond Football Club and Landcare are once again offering a grant to support Landcare groups to achieve positive outcomes for sustainable landscapes, healthy waterways and connected communities.
Partnerships are how Landcare gets its best work done, and the community of Tarwin Lower in Gippsland is just one outstanding example.
Swing Bridge Reserve, National Tree Day - July 28, Rainbow Park, Notice of Upcoming Annual General Meeting
February Meeting: Proposal to open Swing Bridge Reserve to the public, maintenance working-bee at Swing Bridge Reserve, replace March meeting with BBQ at Weir, postpone further planting until soil moisture is recovered.
Members are welcome to use our equipment which includes Traps for Myna's and Starlings, Soil Augers, Tree Planters and a 100L Spray Tank
We've wrapped up our planting season and expended all the grant monies! Stocks of tree guards have been replenished. The latest actions are: Swing Bridge Reserve - getting the grass slashed so we can focus on the woody weeds! And we've marked all the wombat holes, and disposed of some of the dead trees. Fox Road. Plantation is looking good - soil has dried brick hard - we'll need to water unless we get some rain. And we could put out some fertilizer! The rest of the reserve has been sprayed for blackberry and other assorted weeds. Rainbow Park. Spring of the monster weeds. School plantation has been hand cleared, but the rest has become overgrown with nearly every weed you can name! But they can be hand-pulled if we're quick! Christmas Breakup - December 11 at Cafe 3858, Heyfield. Pleasant evening and a traditional Christmas Feast. All the best for the Christmas break - from Cowwarr Landcare Group.
Landcare promotion gets wheels. Orders are now being taken for Victorian Landcare Number Plates.
Landcare Week activities are planned in each of the Networks in West Gippsland.
