BLG is very grateful for some expert help!

Thanks to Graeme Anderson, Climate Specialist, Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport & Resources who gave us a cooly analytical presentation on the factors which impact on our yearly weather and create our climate at the June Information Meeting. He talked about the four key drivers in our climate variability, very amusingly illustrated by the climate dog animations: http://agriculture.vic.gov.au/agriculture/farm-management/weather-and-climate/understanding-weather-and-climate/the-climatedogs-the-four-drivers-that-influence-victorias-climate - check out this utube clip for a good chuckle!

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.
