On Thursday 27th July the Sustainability Ambassadors planted 80 trees/plants for National Community Tree Planting Day at Johnson’s Bend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The native species included:

  • Black Box – Eucalyptus largiflorens
  • River Red Gum – Eucalyptus camaldulensis
  • River Coobah – Acacia stenophylla 
  • Pig Face – Crassifolium
  • Creeping Boobialla – Myoporum parvifolium .

 

 

 

The area re-vegetated has had a lot of off road driving and now with the tees and bollards in place this will be a very nice place visit. Thanks too, to our MRCC Team Nardia, Jo and Tina for all the preparation behind the scenes to make the planting a success.

Bombs Away

IMG_8925A few weeks ago we visited the Mildura Eco Village next the Mildura Landfill. The  Greening Mildura Team showed us how to make seed ‘bombs’ [balls] as a different way of re-vegetating. We rolled clay and different types of native seeds together to make a small ball, the size of a 10c piece, called a seed ‘bomb’. My group rolled out 2.5  trays of seed bombs with 320 in each tray; that is a total of 800 seed bombs. There were many different types of seeds.

This is only one way we can re-vegetate. We can plant trees and use seed dispersal.

The following Sunday Greening Mildura and helpers from the community went around the Mildura Landfill and threw the seed bombs. After that there was a yummy sausage sizzle.
