After a damp 2022, we are looking forward to resuming our working bees in February 2023. Given the height of the creek last year, there’s lots to do and new helping hands are always appreciated. Many hands make light work! Check our calendar for dates and locations.
The Thursday Crew continue making a difference at various locations around town. Thursday Crew working bees are held every Thursday morning during most of the year. Contact Dave (sms 0405 910 176 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in being involved.
We are pleased to share that we will again partner with Tree Project to offer ‘A Box of Habitat’ to Woodend residents.
Each Box of Habitat comes with approx 48 plants – carefully selected to suit the Woodend area. They include a range of grasses, ground cover, shrubs and a few trees. We aim to have 10 or more different species in each box.
Woodend residents can order one or more boxes (max 6), at a cost of $40 per box. Woodend Landcare will coordinate the ordering and delivery of the plants. You need to commit to planting the plants yourself, including providing guards and any necessary site preparation such as weed control, fencing and ripping.
Plants ordered in September 2021 will be available for planting around June 2022.
To order: If you would like to order some habitat for your property, please email email@example.com with the following information:
Number of boxes you would like
A short description of where you will plant the seedlings (to help with species selection)
To pay: Please transfer your total amount ($40 x number of boxes) to our Woodend Landcare account (Woodend Landcare, Westpac Bank, BSB 033-674, Acct 982435). Ensure you put your name on your transfer details.
Important: Orders and payment must be received by the evening of Sunday 19 September so we can finalise our order with Tree Project.
