Kinglake West -Cold wet day.
A coach load of 35 NAB volunteers,
Janet & Cathy.
The challenge for the day was how to fit 300 plants into John & Holly’s small block. Lots of natives grasses, lillies and creepers were planted. A real ‘backyard blitz’ makeover!
They lost their house and garden in the fire and are rebuilding themselves. They needed plants and mulch to fill in the muddy exposed areas and as well as screening from neighbours and the road. The rain didn’t stop this team from finishing the job but we were happy to retreat to the Flying Tarts Bakery for a splendid lunch and an early trip home in a warm bus.
(Chris took the other half of this team pulling weeds in the StoneyCreek Reserve)
