“We did it,” said Landcare organiser Dave Rawlins. “I didn’t expect to, thought we’d be coming back for weeks, but everyone just got in there and planted really quickly – we’re stoked.”
The day was a joint project of Brunswick Valley Landcare, Rainforest Rescue and the Madhima Gulgan Community Association.
Dave was happy to see new faces amongst those who had turned up to lend a hand, and with friends and family of the Madhima Gulgan team also joining in, it made for a great mix of people all working to look after the land.
The planting took place on the property of Malcolm and Jannine Murray, who had already trimmed back camphors and done fencing, and who will be responsible for maintenance.
“We would like to thank all these wonderful people who have turned out,” said Jannine. “It’s absolutely incredible – we’re overwhelmed.”
And Malcolm would like to invite everyone back when it has all grown up a bit, lush and strong, like the smaller planting done last year on another section of the property.
