After our brave attempt to renew some grasslands at the Cherry St site last year , our revisit focused again on red gum regrowth in our target area. While normally red gums are a favored species near the creek, due to runoff caused by development , these red gums were overtaking the grassland. Therefore cutting an amount of the seedlings down to allow other grassland species to survive was critical. About 10 friends and Darebin Bushcrew (including our Facebook co-ordinator Todd) got down to making sure the red gums seedlings and remains from last year didn’t proliferate.
After a few hours hard work, the relief of the morning tea can be seen below.
