Coastcare for Singles May 2014
Yoga teacher, Susie Ascott warmed us up with a short yoga session, Craig explained how the planting would be done, Mike gave a planting demo with our tried and true ’deep planting method’ then we all got to work. Everyone kept their spirits up despite rain showers and strong gusty wind.
By 1.30pm the wonderful workers had planted 1000 seedlings, beautifully and watered them in well. We shared a great lunch and there were a few phone numbers changing hands. A raffle of donated gloves and trowels from Bunnings Cottesloe ended the ‘wild and woolly’ but very successful day.
Many thanks to everyone involved but especially to Kate Sputore (now on Maternity leave), Craig Wilson and Alex Johnston – the Coastal and Marine Program Managers from Perth region NRM. (Thanks to everyone for the photos too)
