First Planting Day: 9 October 2005

Our first planting day was held on the 9th of October. It was a great success and we’d like to thank all of those people who put in many hours to get the plants in. About 9300 plants in total were planted. We were also helped by a group of Australian Conservation Volunteers, who tackled the upper dam under the expert guidance of Warren Saunders of Seeds and Plants Australia.Photos from the day are available from the Dragonfly photo page.
