On 9 December 2016 people gathered at Read Creek to water the new plantings. The task was completed very efficiently using a water cart and people with buckets. It was exciting to see that over 80% were still alive and some had reached the top of the tree guards. The good rainfall in late December would have been very beneficial. We are watering again in January.
On Saturday 14 January the shareholders are having a Planning Day. The aim of the day is work together to develop our 25 year and 10 year goals and to set targets and actions for the coming year to move us towards the goals.
Members were excited to find 75% of new plantings at Read Creek Hills have thrived. Five members gave the plants their first manual watering of the summer on Friday December 9. Plantings are increasing connectivity of native vegetation between Kapunda and Burra.
