Indigenous food and fibre planting in Happy Valley
This forthcoming Sunday is our indigenous food and fibre planting in Happy Valley. The planting site is near the start of the walking track on Happy Valley Road. This is an area we hope to expand over time, eventually being able to add smaller food plants, once there’s enough larger, protective cover for them. So, if you’ve ever wondered what the local Dja Dja Wurrung used in the way of food and working plants, Sunday’s activity will be a good place to start.
We’ll begin at 10am. Please bring a strong spade or mattock (rip lines have been put in), a bucket for watering-in and a hammer (mash hammers are best) for getting the stakes in. It’s a relatively small planting of 100 tubes so we should easily be through by lunchtime.
There’s not too much parking on the bend where the track starts so if some of you could park on the Best Motors forecourt and walk, that would help the congestion.
The Wesley Hill Bakehouse will be providing their yummy morning tea and we hope to have people and information on hand to explain the uses of the plants we’re putting-in.
