Grassland discovery at the Murnong Patch
Wednesday 14 June 2-3 pm
Off Connolly Avenue
Join some regular Merri Murnong volunteers who are well versed in the gentle and contemplative art of grassland appreciation – that often involves weeding. Together we can learn to care for this very special place; no prior skills required, we will show you the ropes.
The progressive discovery and appreciation of the diverse and dynamic complexity of our grassland may involve some weeding; this will sharpen observation skills and indigenous plant knowledge. Indeed, this is one of the best ways to get to know indigenous bush food, as well as fibre and medicinal plants.
Sore back or knees? Feel free to still join us. You can cheer us on and chat! There are also opportunities for all to care for this place by recording information, taking photos, monitoring special plants or designing your own special project.
Young children welcome, there are plenty of opportunities for bush play and fostering a lifelong love of nature.
To enjoy the seasonal changes, we are planning to meet on 14/6; 19/7; 16/8; 13/9; 18/10; 8/11 and 13/12 for 2017.
