Local active happenings

There’s much activity on the planting front – if you’re available this Saturday 11th, local landcare groups would welcome your help – their ambitious aim is to plant 40,000 trees – by 1000 planters. You do the maths, but if you can spare some time and plant a few, that’s fine and most welcome. See more details here:

Greetings fellow Landcarers,

Most of you will be aware of this project to plant 40,000 trees in the North Harcourt area next Saturday and that we have said we would like to have 1000 volunteers. This is a great opportunity for our Mt. Alexander community to gather together to make this event happen. Our numbers are growing up we still need more.

The weather looks good. Land preparation is nearly complete. The toilets are booked and the seedlings are being loaded onto delivery trailers ready for planting.

Make sure you let us know you are coming!

Many hands make light(er) work.

· encourage your friends to register – 40000trees.eventbrite.com

Thanks for your help,
Daryl Colless, On behalf of the 40,000 Trees team

Thanks Saide for representing us and our views as part of the Mount_Alexander_Environmental_Strategy_2015-2025. Still time to comment on it. But Saide has, and you can send further comment to her asap.

And you can put in practise all of the above, in our own garden, or yours.
