Join in ACFIM's final 2022 Birrarung event at the Melbourne Girls College native planting re-vegetation site. ACFIM volunteers help the students' re-vegetation project every 3rd Saturday of the month.The project's aim is to re-populate the Yarra River embankment and area near the school with the original plants of the Yarra -especially the Myrnong plant-the once staple indigenous food source.
On the 17th we plan to transplant Myrnongs that have been cultivated at the site into extended areas there AND have a yarning session with 2 students from the College who have painted the Myrnongs as art works. To mark the festive season,generous serves of home-made Christmas Cake,accompanied by tea and coffee,will be served. Everyone welcome!!!
ACCESS THE SITE FROM THE YARRA RIVER PATH 300 METRES SOUTH OF HAWTHORN BRIDGE, WALK PAST THE COLLEGE BOATSHED AND TAKE THE FIRST RIGHT UP A PATH LEADING FROM THE YARRA PATHWAY. YOU WILL SEE FOLK ON THE RISE...
