Woodend Landcare News – March Working Bee

Sunday 22 March Working Bee @ Ruby McKenzie Reserve

Our next Sunday working bee will be held in the vicinity of Ruby Mckenzie Reserve in Tennyson St from 9am until 12pm on Sunday 22nd of March. We will assemble in the reserve alongside the Landcare blue tool trailer. Briefing for tasks will commence at 9am so try to to get there a bit before then.

Tasks include whipper snipping around plant guards, woody weed control and the removal of a large seedling plum tree. A trailer would be handy if someone has one available. Some of the work areas are fairly rough so wear full length clothing, garden gloves, eye protection, sun protection and sturdy footwear. Bring secateurs if you own a pair.

Newcomers are very welcome and morning tea will be provided. Past plantings and weed control by Landcare have really transformed the Black Gum habitat in this area so come along and help us continually improve this site. For further information contact woodendlandcare@gmail.com.

Cool Changes – District 3442

Macedon Ranges Shire Council is facilitating the development of a community climate change action plan for the wider district of Woodend (covered by postcode 3442).

Following a community information forum last week, independent facilitators will run three workshops to guide the community to develop their own plan, effectively to be an umbrella over all levels of current or desirable action to address climate change.

The first workshop is next Monday 16 March, then there’ll likely be other workshops in mid April and mid May. Council are looking for participants of all ages from across the district. Everyone is welcome!
