Reading the Land @ Berry: Saturday 9 August - 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM
09 Aug, 2014 from 09:00 AM to 02:30 PM

Reading the Land @ Berry is an opportunity for 'artists' to examine and learn about a landscape. They will learn from and with people who know that landscape well: an ecologist, a Koorie artist and an historian. The challenge then is to interpret that in their art. As they see it. Reading the Land is for artists of all levels and all forms – visual, performing, musical, literary. The theme for Reading the Land is: CONNECTIONS This supports physical connections being made through landscape management between the coast and the escarpment. And it speaks to spiritual connections people feel to a landscape. Saturday 9 August, 9.00am – 2.30pm After convening at the Berry Sport and Recreation Centre on Coolangatta Rd participants will visit three sites in the local area. Car pooling will be required, before returning to Sport and Rec for lunch, conversation and art. There is no charge for this event; morning tea and lunch are provided. An exhibition of art from Reading the Land will be at: Silos Estate on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th September. PRE-REGISTRATION IS ESSENTIAL For catering & transport purposes – and to receive essential information – please register with Graeme Gibson: Ph; 4441 8885 or 0408 676 550 E; graeme@morethanjusttalk.com.au

Tree Planting in Memory of Phillip Toyne, Mark Radium Park, Berry, 11 am 6th February 2016
06 Feb, 2016 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

In 2006 Berry Landcare held a memorial tree planting in Mark Radium Park for Rick Farley, who together with Phillip Toyne, established the national Landcare movement. On that occasion Linda Burney MP, Rick’s partner, planted an Illawarra Flame Tree (Brachychiton acerifolius). Phillip Toyne died in 2015 and his widow Molly Harriss Olson has kindly agreed to come to Berry to plant a memorial tree for Phillip in Mark Radium Park adjacent to those planted for Rick Farley. Linda Burney has also kindly agreed to return to Berry to support Molly and to replant the Brachychiton acerifolius, which is ailing. We want our memorial trees to be as strong as the movement our founders created. There will be a barbeque after the trees are planted and an opportunity to see the Arboretum of locally indigenous trees that we have established in Mark Radium Park. If you able to come, please let us know for catering at berrylandcare@gmail.com .
