Planting @ The Fair

Join our planting party in the Mt Majura nature park @ the Fair on Sunday 19 July. Come for a demonstration on How to plant at 1pm and then get your hands dirty and plant local trees, shrubs and flowers. Bring your mum and dad and friends and make the event a real community planting party.

 This year’s event will be the fourth stage of a community re-vegetation project that started in Winter 2012 in the nature park behind The Fair in North Watson. We aim to replace weeds with local native plants, provide habitat for little woodland birds and improve the overall condition of the degraded endangered grassy woodland in the area.

The planting event is a wonderful opportunity for new and old neighbours of Mt Majura to work together, get to know each other and promote the joys of our local bush environment.

Blue Devil, a forb of grassy ecosystems is a native  ground cover species we will plant behind The Fair (W.Pix)
