Twelve community members and one dog – 34 hours of volunteer work. It is a real pleasure to be out getting my hands dirty building habitat and building community.

The team were busy setting up irrigation systems for the summer. Planting, weeding, mulching and log stabilisation for the banks is all preparation for our stormy summers: managing erosion and retaining water means the new plants will make the most of the growing season.

    Good stuff, Laurie, and very pleasing to read about: building habitat and building community. I’m glad I’m involved with M.E.G. — mostly Gertrude Petty Place for me. Thank you.
