Today we had a group of sixteen students from Upwey High School's Kitchen Garden program come to plant indigenous plants in the riparian area of Glenfern Valley Bushlands. The fifty plants were put quickly in the ground which gave us time to walk back a different way and show them around. Thank you so much for your help.
On Sunday 19th June we'll hold our Bush Restoration morning from 9.30am - 12.30pm. We meet at the central car park on Glenfern Road.
Please bring your own garden gloves, and drinking water. There is no longer a vaccination requirement for public spaces. We'll provide you with tools, hand sanitiser, and morning tea.
In case of rain we'll announce any cancellation by email and here on Facebook.
Hope to see you there!

The sun was low as was the mist at our June Bush Restoration.
Throughout areas 7 and 8 we planted tube stock to put the “bush” back in bushlands.
At morning tea Linda spoke about the middle story plant Pomaderris aspera (aspera meaning “rough”). The wood of the “hazel pomaderris” (it has a likeness to flowering hazelnut trees) was used by Aboriginals to make pegs for stretching skins.
It was a lovely morning to spend in the gully of Glenfern. And be sure to view all fifty of the pretty spider web photos below.
This Wednesday July 6th we'll hold our monthly midweek Conservation & Conversation, from 9am to 11am, followed by morning tea.
