Willow Removal in Spring Creek

The North Central Catchment Management, not respecting their agreement not to do further removal of willows in Jim Crow Ck above Shrives Bridges until more research on the effects of willow removal and follow up work, are again in the creek with chainsaws and big machinery wreaking havoc as we speak.  Please see the Holmgren website  on the Spring Creek page for discussion on this issue and further history and info.
Call the advocate  ph: (03) 5348 1028, NCMA ph: (03) 5448 7124 or simply visit the spot which is just downstream of Lavandula and voice your opinion, if you go down, please take some pictures if you can. This environmental vandalism in the name of Landcare is a sad state of affairs. How can we continue to perpetrate the war against nature in this way?

Solstice Dinner

Come join us celebrate the shortest day of the year; the darkness turning towards the light; the renewal of the seasons... The solstice falls on a Thursday (just for us) this year so call your friends and book your place at the table for Thursday June 21st at 7pm at the Town Hall.

Put on your thinking caps and create a delicious dish to share from what you have in the garden, your preserves or the vegie box and bring it wrapped up in a blanket, ready to serve. Please make it vegetarian so it is easier to share.

If you have made some cider or other drinks this season, they would be a delightful contribution as well as collecting some mineral water on the day... Hope to celebrate with music and ritual.
