BLG News

Volunteers can make an enormous difference to the do-ability of a task! Last weekend a gully full of agapanthus was cleared in a couple of hours resulting in a huge compost pile and a clean space for the planting of kangaroo grass.

As the lucky landholder, I (Liddy) am ever so grateful to all 15 people who helped and look forward to helping others on the next Blitz!

If you would like a Blitz! to help with your chores, or to participate in one, please see details on our website and contact our Facilitator Sophie.


A Stroke of Brilliance!

The BLG Rabbit Action committee has been looking at ways we can support our Cluster Groups to carry out fumigation of rabbit warrens in their individual areas. The group only own one Stihl blower which has been modified to produce smoke to locate entrances into a warren before fumigation is carried out. The retail cost of this machine is approximately $830. A considerable amount of time is taken in taking this machine to a cluster, and then having it collected, to be taken to another cluster group.
