Marrickville Council is holding a tree-planting event as a National Tree Day activity at Marrickville Golf Course on Sunday 9th September 2012.

From Council’s website – “This year’s site is on Marrickville Golf Course, close to a remnant sandstone outcrop that would have supported sandstone heath vegetation prior to the land being cleared.  It is on the fringe of the golf course & so there is an opportunity to revegetate the area without disturbing the functions of the golf course.  We are aiming to use the existing habitat features to increase biodiversity & improve habitat connectivity throughout the Cooks River area.  There is a chance to join your local Landcare group to work on the golf course after National Tree Day too – you can sign up on the day!

All plants are native to the Sydney region. Many are supplied by the Marrickville Community Nursery & will therefore help maintain a healthy native seed bank for the future.

Council will provide gloves, trowels & other equipment for planting as well as sunscreen & drinking water.”

WHEN:  Sunday 9th September 2012

TIME:   2pm – 4.30pm

WHERE: Marrickville Golf Course.   The revegetation planting will take place between the 4th hole & the 5th tee, across the road from 84-92 Beauchamp Street Marrickville.

MEET:   Corner of Beauchamp Street & Bruce Street Marrickville.

BRING:  Council asks that volunteers wear appropriate clothing – a hat, covered shoes, long-sleeved shirt & long pants.
