Ararat Avenue, the last bit! Sat June 1st, 10am-midday, Coburg North

Yes it’s a Saturday!
We’re so close to having planted out this whole section of the Upfield shared path from Spry Street to Shorts Road! All that’s left it a few bereft patches, that need some mulching and more plants.

Please come and help and bring your weeding implements, mulch spreaders and perhaps some morning tea!

Meeting: Preserving the Moreland and Coburg Station Significant Trees

Meeting: Preserving the Moreland and Coburg Station Significant Trees

Meeting: Moreland Station East Side

The news has trickled down that the skyrail construction removing the Moreland Rd, Reynard, Munro and Bell St level crossings will result in the loss of many significant trees in the area.

We don’t know for sure, as there are no public statements coming from LXRA.

These trees are an important part of our community and support bird, animal and insect life. They are beautiful, shade providing trees that we can’t afford to lose as the climate changes. Come to a meeting at 10am to talk about what we can do to save them.

Vince's stretch, Sunday May 5th 10am-midday (Coburg North)

This stretch of the Upfield shared path between Renown Street and Baker’s Road is looking pretty good! It’s come such a long, long way since Vince and family began planting here a few years back. Now all it needs it a bit of love and affection now and then.

We’ll be weeding, watering (if it still has not rained) and maybe putting in a few more small ground covers and shrubs. The Coburg North crew hope to see you there!

Oak Lawn - Mulching - North of the Brunswick Baths - Upfield Bike Path

Mulching at Oak Lawn in Brunswick.

This site has been a bit mangled when the Upfield Bike Path went in, but this weekend we are going to plan a few more tree sites and spread the mulch that is there.

Bring gloves, buckets for carrying mulch and water if you have any to put on the trees.

If we finish early, we will head up to Brunswick Station and do a bit of a weed and rubbish collect on the east-side.

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.
