Diary of events in 2018:
General events information:Events fall broadly into three categories, but there is considerable overlap.
Two major events in the annual calendar are the themed Winter dinner and the end-of-year BBQ. All events are sociable and fun!
Each year we aim to have at least three primarily informative events, with topics raised by members or driven by the interests of the organizing group.
Wesley Park was the next public land focus: Newham Garden group and Newham Landcare have joined forces to enhance this community asset. Preparation of a plan and the initial planting of indigenous natives was undertaken with financial assistance from Macdon Ranges Shire Council. Maintenance and additional planting has been ongoing, funded by the Landcare group.
In 2012 Hanging Rock Reserve became the focus for our two 'official' planting days. Removal of woody weeds along the creek was undertaken by a contractor and volunteers then planted 1200 indigenous native under-storey plants, funded by a grant obtained by the Landcare group. Since then thousands more indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses have been planted, and much weeding and maintence work undertaken.
If you enjoy our planting days, there are plenty of other opportunities - members may call for assistance with revegetation works on their property.
You can expect these 'member plantings' to involve two hours of activity, followed by almost as long over lunch!
Working as a group on each others properties is a most enjoyable way to get things done.
