Heathmont Bushcare has been invited to participate in the Heathmont Easter Bush Market, to be held at Uambi, on Sunday April 14th. The market will run between the hours of 10.00am to 2.00pm, but we will need help in setting up from about 9.00am, as well as packing up.
If you can help out on the day to promote the wonderful work that Heathmont Bushcare does, hand out flyers, sign up new members, chat to people or collect gold coin donations from people, that would be wonderful.
The Open Day at Uambi will not be held this year, so this is our big chance to spread the word and sign up new members.
Please reply to email@example.com if you are able to help out.
Mark the date in your diaries! Sunday April 14th from 10.00am to 2.00pm is the date of the inaugural Easter Market to be held at Uambi.
Join us for a pre-Easter weekend under the gum trees at Uambi.
Heathmont Easter Bush Market in conjunction with Provincial Makers Market will showcase some wonderful local businesses and their amazing products and fresh seasonal produce.
In a variation from the Christmas market, this market will feature more food stalls as well as some of your old favourites.
And this time, we are joined by local artist Jacinta, who will be doing traditional aboriginal art face painting for the children.
There will be:
- jams, chutneys, sauces and marmalades
- Uambi honey
- delicious cakes, slices and caneles
- skincare and aromatherapy
and much more!
Join us for a picnic under the gums and and bring your shopping bags to take home all the wonderful locally grown and made gifts and produce.

NOMINATIONS FOR VEFN 2018 BEST FRIEND AWARD CLOSE WEDNESDAY 27TH JUNE.
There are less than three weeks left to complete nominations for this year’s VEFN Best Friend Award.The award acknowledges the outstanding contribution made to the environment by volunteer members of Friends groups.
The Department of Environment, Land Water & Planning has again generously provided VEFN with a grant of $5,000 in support of the Best Friend Award. As in previous years, VEFN will provide a grant to award recipients’ groups. In 2017, Friends of Tyers Park used its grant to upgrade walking track signage. See the story (page 2) in the May edition of FriendsNET here.
If there is someone in your Friends group, who you believe shows personal dedication above and beyond the usual expectation, nominating them for this award is one way of showing how much your group values their efforts. Nominations are assessed by an independent judging panel and will be presented at the award ceremony on 25th August. The awards ceremony will be held at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne.
The criteria for the Best Friend Award and a nomination form can be downloaded here. Nominations are due by 5 pm on Wednesday 27th June, 2018.
In conjunction with the Best Friend Award, we will again run a poster competition. Friends groups are encouraged to submit their posters for a prize to be awarded at the Best Friend Award ceremony in August.
EAE is looking for new members/volunteers.
If you are interested in joining the group, please get in contact with them.
