It’s time to plant out some of the sedges and grasses our members have grown!
Twenty or so landcare friends had an enjoyable day in February learning how to propagate some of our local sedge and grass species. Now the ground is moist enough, it’s time to plant some of the seedlings they’ve grown.
We’ll be planting in a low lying area in Castlemaine that was probably a prior streambed of Campbells Creek. Some parts have good soil, others are quite pebbly and hard to dig.
Wear light gloves, sturdy footwear and clothing suitable for the day. Gum boots are strongly advised!
If you can, please bring a digging tool like a pick. Make sure you’ve marked it as your own.
Meet in the carpark at the end of Lewis Drive, Castlemaine for a 10:00 a.m. start. There’s car parking space there or along Lewis Drive itself.
If you arrive late, walk downstream (south-west) along the walking track for 150 m or so to the planting site (our starting point is marked in the map below). If you do, please make yourself known to our organisers so you can sign on and be briefed.
We'll finish at midday with light refreshments.
Hope to see you there!
