March news

It’s been a dry summer, now that Autumn has rolled around it will be a relief to get some cooler weather and hopefully some rain. Autumn is one of the most beautiful times in the Macedon Ranges and a great time to get out in your own garden. Feel free to let us know what you’re up to in your garden in the comments section below!

Our next Sunday working bee on March 24th will be held at the Quarry Rd rail reserve to further enhance the wildflowers that appear along here each Spring. We will be working once again on the section which has the best biodiversity and need to remove the remaining  broom and other woody weeds which are a threat to this site.

Wear sturdy footwear and full length protective clothing and bring gloves, eye protection, secateurs, loppers and maybe a kneeling pad. The Landcare trailer will be on site and morning tea is provided. A good turnout will get us close to finishing the tidy up of this important site, if you needed an incentive there will be hot cross buns for morning tea! Park in Washington Lane and carefully cross Quarry Rd to access the works area. (We need to limit parking on the reserve to works vehicles only). A briefing will be held at 9am.
