Friday August 10th has seen the newly landscaped creek area transformed into a beautiful space, inhabited with indigenous plants and native edibles. St Jo’s is lucky enough to have a fabulous mix of delicious guavas, and the wildlife around will love the Lomandra spp., Correa alba, Dionella spp., Knobby Club Rush, native Viola spp., and Saltbush, which will all establish themselves over the next year or so to provide a rich and diverse habitat and food source for local birds, mammals, and insects.
Jess and Lucy were fortunate enough to have the skills and expertise of the lovely Tahlia Berryman and Jazmine Bellingham, grade 1 /2 C, who braved the wild and windy weather to help. Together they worked hard to cut back the Knobby Club Rush, water all the newly planted plants, and tidy the whole place up. Many thanks to both of you for your sparky and energetic approach to gardening, it’s always a pleasure to have you out as helpers.
