Vince has been on holiday and things (well, weeds) have gotten a little out of hand! He’d appreciate some help with weeding (the mulch and recent rain has made the ground nice and soft so pulling them out is fun!).

Please bring digging / weeding equipment and a hat and your own water and snack!

Renown St Orchard

A huge pile of mulch has been delivered to the Renown St Orchard that needs to be spread, but unfortunately it is not quite at the Orchard but a bit up the road. 

So we need you, your spades and your wheelbarrows to sort this situation out!  Please come along!

Drew is the contact person on the day so if you turn up and are not sure what to do, ask for Drew.

Merlynston planting, Bain Reserve

Merlynston planting, Bain Reserve

  • Bain Reserve planting & maintenance (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Community planting day at the Upfield Urban Forest's northern Merlynston stretch. One of the first community plantings to take place in Merlynston was this site, about 10 years ago. It's a little, well-established strip of gums and native shrubbery just north of Merlynston station, to the west of the train tracks in Bain Reserve. You'll find us just south of Boundary Road (near the concrete cricket pitch opposite FoodWorks).

While it's lovely, we need to rip out some weeds and fill in the gaps with some new natives so that they can take over (and show those weedy weeds who's boss)!

Please bring: a weeding implement, and / or a digging implement - and perhaps a snack to share. A wheelbarrow is always good if someone has one close by.

Renown St Orchard

Finally....the Renown St Orchard planting has a date... today!  (Starting on the southern border)

Please bring your mattocks, shovels and digging muscles! And possibly a fencing pole/long crowbar (if anyone has one) in case we need to dig out any bloody big rocks.

PS We have some spare digging equipment, so if you want to come but don't have the gear come along anyway!  This is going to be heaps of fun!

Drew is the contact person on the day so if you turn up and are not sure what to do, ask for Drew!
