All seven plantings have been successful and satisfying – one Saturday morning each autumn enough people do come out, good-naturedly cooperate with Council staff, proving an old adage, ‘many hands make light work’.
These sessions add indigenous landscape, support wildlife, mitigate climate change and enhance park character, while also increasing local pride and safety.
Last year, Council recognized our event with a group photo in Divercity, a real boost! Now, we’re aboard S.H.I.P.’s PORTogether Project. I urge nearby residents to join with neighbours in beautifying Lagoon Reserve and building connections to Port Melbourne!
