Dear friends of Heathmont Bushcare,
Hope everyone has had an enjoyable festive season and looking forward to a COVID restriction free 2021!
Following our pre Xmas gathering at Uambi and Colin Arnold’s (from GrazeAway) inspiring talk regarding how goats can help manage our bushland remnants, it is with great anticipation that we can commence this exciting project along the Heathmont Railway Line. The project will focus on the railway reserve land and non-fenced areas between The Greenway and Armstrong Road.
Our first working bee will be about setting the fence enclosure along the railway line between The Greenway and Armstrong Road; and releasing the goats (under Colin’s direction)!
Colin will be supplying the temporary fence panels (and goats).
As there is a bit of work here it would be much appreciated if some volunteers could turn-up earlier – say 9.00AM – to help deposit the fence panels along the railway line reserve so they can be easily setup after 10.00 – when hopefully we will have a few more to help. Also it would be very helpful if a few can bring a portable drill – so we quickly screw the panels together (screw bits will be supplied).
