Hi Friends and FoEC'ers,
We are back after a slightly longer break than usual at this time of the year (because of World Environment Day) and will be planting again on Sunday. Usual time and sort of usual place - the creek, 1-3PM with early and late contributions always welcome.
We are at the M9 water main area - near the concrete channel at Ronald St and Danthonia St. Forecast is favourable for us, not so good for the plants. Very low chance of a shower with less than a millimeter if anything (30% chance of 0 - 0.2mm). What a horrible winter it has been so far and no relief in the forcast - wee need rain desperately. It would seem that climate change is not real and is not already upon us as all the scientists keep telling us. Winter drought is normal and has nothing to do with the impact of human's upon the environment. Ooops, sorry that line was meant for the Trump administration, Mr Tony Abbott, the minerals council and Australian Conservatives movement...
Details of our event are as below (this information comes from my Melbourne Water Community Grant application); and I hope to see you on the creek!
PS: anyone who is free this Saturday 15/07 1-3PM and is able to help me out with a large volunteer group please give me a call or send me an email - we will be doing mainly maintenance activities and some planting at the Gooseneck area. Thanks.
