TAROONA PARK BUSHLAND - After a chilly start, we soon warmed up as we 'grazed' our way across the bushland. This piece of remnant bushland is very healthy, with Jane, Rowena, Ann and Fi having to deal with only the occasional small cotoneaster, blackberry, briar rose and boneseed. The far northern boundary, adjacent IMAS and the DPIPWE properties is not so great, with Nigel, John and Gustaaf being buried in blackberry for a couple of hours. 

Happy with our efforts, and with half an hour to go, we relocated to the Blackwood Forest below the Kelvedson Soccer Oval to tackle some unfinished business from last month's working bee - a garden escapee Rowan tree that had heavily seeded with about 30 seedlings to cut and paste. Ann also began work on some 3m high clumps of fennel, and John got started on a large blackberry mess.

Concluded as usual with a cuppa.
