Marrickville Council with the co-operation of Marrickville Golf Club has built a new rain garden in the Marrickville Golf Course. 

Rain gardens capture & soak up stormwater runoff.  The Bruce Street Rain Garden will help filter & clean stormwater before it enters the Cooks River.   It will also provide habitat for wildlife adding to the urban biodiversity mosaic.

Council is inviting the community to come & help plant the new rain garden, which is located near the bottom of Bruce Street Marrickville.  Council will provide participants with food, drinks, equipment & gloves.

DATE:  Sunday 23rd February 2014.

TIME:  9am – 12 noon.

BRING hat, sunscreen, sunglasses & sturdy, closed-toe shoes.

RSVP ESSENTIAL:  Phone 9335 2104 or email: jean.brennan@Marrickville.nsw.gov.au
