Planting on Bare Ground

Marriotts Falls Track

Friday 28 July 2017
After preparing holes for plants at the open area on the track to Marriotts Falls two weeks prior we again went to help the children from Westerway Primary School put them in. It was for National Tree Day and is a Wilds'Cool project
Happily, the weather was pleasant and the kids enjoyed themselves, especially watering the plants.
Whilst there we took the opportunity to get rid of a large yellow berried Holly tree.
