On Sunday 12, May Mother’s Day, 150 members of the Woodend community, along with a few day trippers and visitors from Melbourne, Trentham, Lancefield and Ballarat, planted over 250 indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses to celebrate mums and create living legacies.
Special thanks go to the Landcare members who prepared the site on Five Mile Creek ready for the planting and helped out on the day and to Peter Yates and David Gossip for their hard work selecting the plants and drawing up the planting plan to ensure the site will look its best when the plants mature.
Macedon Ranges Shire Councillors Jennifer Anderson, John Connor and John Letchford attended the event as well as Joanne Duncan MP.
“I feel so lucky to live in Woodend, with places to plant native vegetation, and people to help me do it. Congratulations on another successful year” commented Cr Jennifer Anderson, Macedon Ranges Shire Council
We hope to run another
Trees for Mum event on Sunday 11 May next year so mark it in your diary and join us on Facebook Trees for Mum Woodend, to keep up with the news.
