Time & Location

16 Mar 2024, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Warrnambool, 2 Grieve St, Warrnambool VIC 3280, Australia

About the event

We have an area in the northwest corner of our site where we would like to establish a small, mixed native grassland interspersed with some native shrubs and small trees.  With support from a Wannon Water Ripple Effect grant, we are now ready to move on to the mixed grassland species - grasses and forbs.

We need your help to plant some of the things we've propagated and sourced - can you spare some time to help? We're offering a free lunch for your efforts.

Our local project is now part of a much bigger initiative, with plans being developed to create some biodiversity corridors linking areas with pre-existing native plantings. 

Some of the key pre-existing areas include the foreshore area, Albert Park, the Russell's Creek Reserve, and Tozer Reserve.  Our little area will be one step along the way.  

After the planting session from 9am-12pm, we're excited to have special guests share some of their experiences in this area over lunch:

  • Jenny Emeny - Tozer Reserve experiences and learnings
  • Kevin Sparrow - sharing his new book, Plants of the Great South West, 4th Ed
  • Michelle Parker - Gardens for Wildlife and backyard biodiversity efforts in Warrnambool
  • Geoff Rollinson - Landcare/Coastcare's project to create a biolink in Warrnambool
