Wet working bee at Delta Street spreading mulch

We had a wet but productive working bee in the park today.  We spread a large pile of mulch in the planting below Delta Street. The rain eased up toward the end.  We had our tea and coffee near the wooden seat.

Back Creek is flowing strongly through the park at the moment due to the recent rainfall.

Adrian Hotchin from Borooondara Council, a regular working bee attendee, was absent today as he is in Sydney.  We have some more interesting news on the reason for his trip there to come!

Working bee - weeding along Back Creek and in the plantings

Sunday November 24 2013. Eight people, including to two Year 8 Community Service students from Carey, weeded in the plantings and along Back Creek.  Sticky weed was the most common, we removed a lot of it.

Unfortunately the baby Tawny Frogmouth had recently fallen from its nest in a nearby Eucalypt and died , so we buried it.

The creek was flowing and a couple of ducks were swimming in it.

We concluded with morning tea at Stuarts.

Working bee near Verdun Street

The working bee on 25 August 2013 was productive.  We replanted a section of South Surrey Park just down from the entry off Verdun Street behind the Riversdale Road shops, near Cafe Biscotti.

Some friendly residents provided us with some nice coffee and stopped for a chat too.
