Green thumbs are invited to roll up their sleeves and help plant 4,000 native plants at Hopetoun Park at the 19th annual Grow West Community Planting Day on Sunday 24th July 2022.
The annual planting day is one of Grow West’s biggest events and is an important opportunity to rejuvenate and restore local landscapes. This highly anticipated community event was sadly cancelled in 2020 and 2021 but is back this year.
The planting day will be held at Pelican Point on the Werribee River at Hopetoun Park. This is an important site to protect and enhance as it is known to be home to many threatened species and in fact the vegetation community, Plains Woodland/Plains Grassy Grassland Mosaic, is endangered. Our work along the river here will help to improve the habitat value of this important link through the landscape, which connects up with previous years plantings.
We ask that you register to help with planning for the day. This includes catering for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Please make sure you register a ticket for every attendee, including children. Registration will be open until the 21st July or until booked out.
Grow West is a partnership between Melbourne Water, Moorabool ShireCouncil and Southern Rural Water.
The Grow West Community Planting Day is an annual event run by Grow West in partnership with Victorian National Parks Association, Friends of Hopetoun Park and Parwan Gorge, Friends of Werribee Gorge and Long Forest Mallee, Moorabool Landcare Network, Bacchus Marsh Lions Club, Victorian Mobile Landcare Group and Moorabool Shire Council.
