Volunteers & Members

Wednesday and Sunday working bees follow Victorian Government COVID-safe health guidelines.

Picture is illustrative! Please observe social distancing at all times during working bees.

The best way to help regenerate the indigenous landscape of Gardiners Creek is to volunteer at one of our regular working bees! These run for 2 hours and you don’t need to be a member to participate! We have recently added an additional Sunday working bee each month to accommodate demand. Details below.

Wednesday Working Bees

Monthly on the LAST Wednesday of every month. 10:00am to 12:00pm.

The next Wednesday working bee is on the 28th December, 2022.

Sunday Working Bees

Monthly on the SECOND Sunday and THIRD Sunday of every month. 10:00am to 12:00pm.

The next Sunday working bees are on the 11th December and 18th December 2022.

Meeting point

This is about halfway between Great Valley Road and High Street, about halfway between the Monash Freeway and Gardiners Creek.
