I would like to invite the Mullumbimby Creek community to help to plant 348 understorey plants that we received from Byron Shire Council Bush Futures funding last year.
The planting event will start this Sunday 1 July from 9am to 11am. Meet at 9am at the driveway of number 22 Tristran Parade. Follow the sign to our Landcare site.
We will be planting on the Crown land road reserve, behind Tristran Parade property numbers 18, 20 and 22 where I and other community members have already planted a canopy. This is a chemical-free planting site, so it is safe for children and any community members with chemical sensitivity.
We will continue to plant after this event on the last Sunday of every month. So 29 July will be our next planting day, till every tree is in the ground.
I will bring the trees, the spades, and donate a bag of fertiliser. If anyone has some water crystal to donate it would be great.
Please let me know if you can help, by phoning 6684 4771.
Please wear boots, long-sleeve shirt, a hat and gloves, and bring water to drink and some morning tea (I will make a cassava cake to share).
