20 years of community plantings at Myara Brook


‘Last Friday, the Landcare SJ team was joined by the Keysbrook Community Group and Byford Envirolink to plant 500 native seedlings at Keysbrook Park and the ‘Old School’.

This year’s planting has added another layer of biodiversity to the planting site. There have been successive planting events at the site since the year 2000. Throughout the last 20 years, these sites have been completely transformed from thickets of watsonia to areas of healthy native vegetation.

This is due to countless amounts of community volunteer hours through manual weed removal, spraying and revegetation.’
