Wednesday and Sunday working bees follow Victorian Government COVID-safe health guidelines.
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. Also Clean Up Australia Day, Sunday 6th March 2022, scroll down for links.
