Sunday session

Cottesloe Coastcare has a regular working bee on the first Sunday of the month. On Sunday 7th June a group of 11 enthusiastic Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers plus the North Metro coastcare Officer, Kate Sputore put in a hard working morning.We planted local native plants at the south east corner of Grant Marine Park where an area of unused lawn is being returned to local native plants - so extending the natural area of the park.
The previously reticulated lawn was dead but it was very hard work creating holes in the dead material for planting. Mike and Anthony did a brilliant job with mattocks but I'm sure they will have had aching muscles the next morning. As always we need to water in the seedlings well, once they have been planted. Melanie (from CCA's QLD division!) is on bucket duty in this picture.

In this picture Elva,Marian and Kate(all in the foreground) are doing a great job planting seedlings.

Morning tea is always a good time to stretch the aching muscles, rehydrate and socialise! Some home made cake or biscuits is always appreciated by everyone. Kate made us all some fantastic chocolate brownies - many thanks Kate! Well fortified after morning tea, we were all able to finish off the morning planting of about 250 seedlings and erection of plant guards, by about 12 midday.
It was a great Sunday session - thanks to everyone!
