Community Planting Day in June

Brookfield Vale are organising a Community Planting Day on Sunday, 12th June, at  the
corner of Torres Parade and Argent Street in Aveley.  The day will start at 10:00am, and finish up around 12:30pm with a free sausage sizzle for all volunteers.

The aim is to revegetate a small patch of bare ground adjacent to bushland.  Revegetation helps to conserve existing biodiversity.  This is a good chance to learn more about local bushland and the plant species that grow there, as well as get some experience in hands-on bushland stewardship.  Feel free to ask lots of questions.  It's also a great opportunity to meet your neighbours!

we can make a difference
As we will be working outside in the sun, around scratchy bushland plants, please wear protective clothing and footwear - long pants, long-sleeved shirt and sturdy closed shoes or boots with long socks.  Gardening gloves, a hat and sunscreen might be useful too.  Please bring a bottle of drinking water for yourself. 

All planting equipment and plants will be provided.

To RSVP please call Kellie Bennett 9428 6079
