Planting day big success

Evie, 6, and Millie, 4, McGrath got into the spirit of the day.

Residents of The Point and local community members gathered to celebrate the arrival of spring at the annual community planting day.

More than 40 volunteers worked together to plant more than 400 new seedlings within the existing vegetation area on the edge of the waterway opposite Cowry Way.

This is the fourth year in a row Moremac Property Group has hosted the event in partnership with local environment group the Bellarine Catchment Network.

Volunteers were guided by two of the network’s representatives, Neil Sutton and Felicity Thyer.

Moremac Property Group project director Doug Vallance said it was fantastic to see so many residents enthusiastic about giving back to their local community.

“It’s great to see the community continuing to support this event and I’d like to thank everyone involved,” Mr Vallance said.

“All those that attended were passionate about supporting their local environment and worked hard to plant a lot of indigenous plants within just a few hours.

“We’ll be keeping an eye on this site and we should hopefully see significant growth over the next few months.”
