It was a tremendous effort by all concerned in so many different directions! Propagation, Planning, Photo, Promotion, I describe the Undertaking as definitely successful’. More hundreds, if not thousands, of Port people know about our local initiative and the Bubup Womindjeka’s Open Day than ever before.
Surely that translates into positive community value, richness, respect and pride, – some measurable, much ineffable but palpable.
Fantastic to think so many seedlings did get planted to refresh, augment, and extend two of Lagoon Reserve’s native garden beds – all in still warm, damp soil at an optimum time.
Although it is impossible to measure how many people knew about our event or considered the conditions prohibitive, I believe there is community appreciation for our initiative that resonates in respect and enjoyment of the park. Extra gratitude is due to the true ‘Outdoor Champions who ventured out in imposing conditions to work with Council Officers to enrich one of Port Melbourne’s special parks.
