Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink Community Planting Day

16 June @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

We welcome the community to join us for our first Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network
(MPLN) planting day on the 16th of June 2024 in Main Ridge.

This planting day contributes to the Greens Bush to Arthur’s Seat Biolink project (GB2AS) that improves catchment health and provides landscape connectivity between significant areas of remnant vegetation.

This decadal program is undertaking extensive revegetation, weeding, and protection of indigenous vegetation across private farm lands to improve biodiversity, the survival chances of rare and endangered flora and fauna and agricultural productivity. As a result, a biolink is being created
between Greens Bush and Arthur’s seat.

Through holistic land management planning, site specific local provenance tubestock species were selected for installation on farm land that is located in the biolink zone.

To date, revegetation has been undertaken on fifteen properties, in partnership with local primary & secondary schools, tertiary institutions, Scouts and Girl Guides Australia and the wider community. A total of 1072 volunteers have contributed to the planting of ~34,500 Indigenous plants and a further four properties are participating in this year’s planting.

What to bring: BYO hat, reusable cup, gloves, weather appropriate clothes and a water bottle.

Landcare will supply all other tools and equipment for tree planting.

Where: 290 Main Creek Road, Main Ridge, 3928
When: Sunday 16th June 2024
Time: 9.00am – 12.00pm: introductions, training and planting

Please RSVP by Friday the 14th of June to thomas@regeneratingfarms.com.au or
call Thomas Kennett on 0499 596 493 with any questions.
