Last Saturday, Bangalee Bushcare held a major planting event to mark the 2018 Sustaining Landcare Week.
A total of 14 people attended the event, helping with everything from planting trees, making tree cages, watering and cooking. Through everyone's fantastic efforts, nearly 150 Lomandras were planted in the eastern gully to prevent further erosion while about 220 trees and shrubs were planted, caged and watered in the flatter areas around the gully. The volunteers contributed at total of 70 person-hours of work on the day! Well done!!!
Some of the species planted include:
Sydney Blue Gum
Illawarra Flame Tree
Toothed Daisy Bush
Over the next few months, Bangalee Bushcare's regular volunteers will continue to water all the new plants as well as put in another 250 in various areas around the eastern gully.
