Rotary joins hands with Landcare
TWO of Australia’s biggest community based organisations are coming together to plant trees and enjoy the great outdoors.
Rotarians from Malvern and Chadstone will be rolling up their sleeves for two days of fun with members of the Leongatha Rotary Club, Landcare members and the local community to plant trees.
The first tree planting day is on this Sunday at Zak and Tanya Chalmers property, 10 Valley Plains Road Leongatha South.
The Chalmers run beef cattle as well as operating a business, Valley Plains Pottery on the farm.
The property contains roughly 38 ha of native bushland.
The Chalmers will share stories on their involvement with Landcare and the interesting processes involved with pottery production.
The second tree planting day is on Sunday, June 14 at the Meeniyan wastewater treatment lagoons and wetlands managed by South Gippsland Water.
After the tree planting, South Gippsland Water staff will provide a guided tour of the wetlands.
Learn about the processes involved in treating wastewater so that it can be reused by nearby farms, businesses and sporting grounds.
Both planting days will run from 10.30am to 1.30pm and include a free barbecue lunch courtesy of the Leongatha Rotary Club.
This is a community event open to all. Please BYO gum boots, gloves and weather appropriate clothing.
If you would like to take part in either of these days, for as long or as little time as you like, please contact the South Gippsland Landcare Network for more information and for catering purposes on 5662 5759 or email email@example.com or visit www.sgln.org.au.
