Postscript: we had a great weekend!

Here is a list of the weeds we targeted: scotch broom, agapanthus, blackberry, tutsan, montbretia, Japanese and Himalayan honeysuckle. Some holly, ivy and cotoneaster were also controlled on the weekend. We also planted some tubestock along the creekline to improve the resilience and functionality of the site, and we did some maintenance on some previous planting sites including mulching.

We had a great time of fellowship and a group on Sunday visited The Gully Aboriginal Place nearby to learn about the local history, impacts of stolen generations and land redevelopment, and the environmental restoration of the swamp onsite.
