Over months we slashed and mowed and poisoned until it looked like this:
Preparation for the day.

We laid out plants, stakes and tree guards (supplied by Toyota), wheel barrows of mulch (supplied by the Wodonga Council) and cardboard (supplied by Visy) …

 

 

 

and food for the workers.

Then the 20 Catholic College girls and Teacher arrived and watched a tree planting demonstration.

Let the work commence.

 

 

 

Then we took a break.

 

 

and the Result?

 

 

Congratulations to everyone involved.

  • Catholic College:  20 girls and Teacher (Helen)
  • Two workers from Toyota (Susie and Rebecca)
  • Nine of our members (Ross and Lorelle Sceriha, John Broadfoot, John Jones, John and Sandy Kaitler, Chris Walkerden and Pam and Bruce Nulty)
  • Visy for supplying the cardboard.
  • Wodonga Council for supplying the mulch and mowing of the area.
  • The weather was perfect and the atmosphere very pleasant. We will follow up with some further mulching over the next few weeks.

Now, let the plants grow.
