Call for interest: plantings at McLaughlin's Creek (Aug-Sept 2020)

Over the past few years, the Sutton Landcare Group has made several attempts to replant a small area in Sutton, adjoining McLaughlin's Creek. Two sets of 150 tubestock from Greening Australia were planted by volunteers. Unfortunately, the first planting died, because of heavier than expected frost (- 8 C◦!), and the recent drought has meant that only 30 plants from the second planting have survived - thanks to the efforts from members of watering regularly. Some of the survivors look healthy and have grown. Now we have had some decent rain we have decided to do a third planting in August/ September 2020. We will keep you informed when that will be and are happy with anyone willing to come and help plant, big and small! For more information, please contact us on sutton.landcare@gmail.com
