Nimbin Environment Centre received funding from the Australian Government’s Communities Environment Program for a hands on project to restore riparian rainforest on an upper section of Mulgum Creek. This stretch of creek was chosen because it has some serious incursions of environmental weeds and provides connectivity with other areas where bush regeneration activities have taken place. Removing pest plants in this zone will also reduce their impacts further downstream.
The project includes workshops on plant ID. Participants will learn to recognise emerging native plants as well as exotic species in the field and join in hand weeding and planting working bees. The aim is to use best practice bush regeneration techniques with a focus on green and organic methods. To reduce the use of chemical requires many hands. It is labour intensive but the rewards are many.
Working bees are also held. Contact nimbinenvironmentcentre@gmail.
