Grow West Community Planting Day 2024

23 June 2024

Green thumbs are invited to roll up their sleeves and help plant 4,000 native plants on Wurundjeri Country at Telford Park, Darley for the annual Grow West Community Planting Day on Sunday 21st July 2024.

The annual planting day is one of Grow West’s biggest events and is an important opportunity to rejuvenate and restore local landscapes.

This year, Grow West is excited to be partnering with Moorabool Shire Council to revisit and improve Telford Park. Moorabool Shire Council are one of Grow West’s longest running partners and so it is wonderful to be running this planting day with them. Grow West held a community planting day on this site in 2017 to improve native vegetation and decrease erosion
impacts. It is a wonderful opportunity to work with council to further improve this site. This year’s planting day will focus on undertaking in-fill planting and providing good mid story habitat for birds and insects. This planting day will provide necessary habitat linkages in the landscape, with the Lerderderg River and other patches of vegetation nearby.
