A call to friends of Powlett Hill, from Andrew & Jenny Fawcett, Ben & Jo Fawcett:
As part of the 2 million tree project the state government offered community and private groups the opportunity to apply for grants for vegetation projects. We have been fortunate to receive funding for 1000 trees and shrubs.
At Powlett Hill we have a long term plan to develop a wildlife corridor throughout the farm, already vegetated areas will eventually be connected along waterways and shelter plantations, the corridor will extend from the Campbelltown bush at the northern edge of the farm throughout the whole farm.
We would be very appreciative of friends of the farm to come on either Sunday 27th July (National tree planting day ) or Tuesday 29th July from 11.00 am and plant 10 trees each, we will have piping hot soup and fresh bread to warm the soul.
Please bring yourself a mug so we can save another tree.
If you are able to assist with this project please respond by email or phone so we can be sure to have plenty of soup .
We’ll be organising carpooling from Newstead for community gardeners. Let us know if you can come – 0439 003 469 or email@example.com and which day – alternatively, contact the Fawcett’s direct, see below. We’ve been well supported by Powlett Hill since our garden began, especially through compost makings, now we can repay their generosity.
Location – 110 Kellys Road, Glengower VIC 3370 (look up google maps), Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 0353 456287.
