The Society’s Blue Wren Group held a highly successful Planting Day in Paddy Gray Reserve, Hereford Street, on the gloriously sunny morning of Sunday 1st August 2010. About 150 people came including lots of children and, demonstrating the power of the internet, residents from 16 other suburbs. Citywide, The City of Sydney’s contractors, had prepared the soil, tools were provided, and 1,000 Blue Wren friendly seedlings were planted, provided by Council & the Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery. Delicious morning pastries were supplied by the Society, accompanied by espresso coffee from a local “coffee-van” and followed by a sausage sizzle provided by the Lions Club. Thank you to the many who contributed to the success of the day and especially to the Council staff whose hand-on involvement was critical.
Continuing the heavenly blessing, within a day or two good rain fell, helping the seedlings get a firm roothold.
