Spring planting

I really should start writing about events before they happen. Well, better late than never…

Last weekend I took part on the Spring Planting Day, at Manninghan Reserve in Royal Park. This annual event congregates volunteers who plant trees and smaller plants (provided by the organisation) around the park, in pre-selected areas. The organisation also provides tools, gloves and water (for the plants, not for you), and a barbecue follows the event.

This year there were some 60 or 70 people there, including several children (and quite a few dogs); it was a beautiful day, sunny and warm without being unconfortably hot. Liberal application of sunscreen was necessary, of course. Apart from the flies and other annoying insects, it was a very nice experience, and I will certainly return next year. Note to self: remember to bring drinking water next year.

I also plan on writing here about the event next year in time for people to join…
