Spring in their indigenous step

Bellarine Catchment Network program manager Matt Crawley.

Bellarine Peninsula’s residents and community members are invited to get their hands dirty and help The Point Point Lonsdale prepare for spring, at a special community planting day on Sunday 20 August.
The event is a part of Moremac Property Group’s ongoing partnership with the Bellarine Catchment Network, and will involve planting a selection of indigenous flora to complement the developing parks and wetlands of the seaside neighbourhood.
Following the hands-on gardening event, a free barbecue lunch with refreshments will be provided for everyone to enjoy.
Moremac Property Group director Bryce Moore said the community planting day would be a great way for local community members to socialise; be inspired by what’s been achieved through previous plantings and help enhance the native vegetation in the area.
“We’re looking forward to seeing familiar faces as well as introducing new residents and community members to the environment at The Point. The community day is a great occasion for existing and future community members to meet and mingle, but it’s also a way to show support for the region and the local ecosystem,” Mr Moore said.
Bellarine Catchment Network program manager Matt Crawley said the event was a special way for both young and old community members to make a positive impact on the environment and learn more about the diversity of indigenous plant and wildlife in the area.
“There will be a wide selection of vegetation to plant, including an assortment of native fauna,” Mr Crawley said.
“We want green-minded individuals to understand how much their contribution will mean to the The Point, and that every shrub planted is a step further to protecting and growing the natural, coastal Moonah Woodland environment.”
