Barkers Creek Landcare and Wildlife group conduct a working bee every month from February to November on the third Sunday of the month.
Each year we also have two reciprocal joint working bees with Harcourt Valley Landcare group.
We encourage members to put the third Sunday of the month in their diaries. A week or so before the actual date an e-mail will be sent with all the final details – where, what, when and why? It needs to be said that after each working bee we enjoy, what can only be called, a scrumptious morning tea. All that hard work makes us hungry. And in December we have a lovely Christmas break up. Yeah!!!
Our start time does vary depending on the time of year. In Summer (February, March & November) it is 9am. In Winter (June, July & August) we start at 10am. For the other months (April, May, September & October) 9.30am is the go. Regardless of the start time we are always well and truly done by noon.

September Working Bee
17/09/2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
September is our social / education month and we have two wonderful events on offer instead of our normal working bee. So this month you can leave your gloves and picks in the shed and come and enjoy a couple very interesting outings.
Our normal working bee is Sunday 17th September 9.30am @ the Bushland Reserve – (enter from Peelers Rd), Tanya Loos (also from Connecting Country) will take us on a wonderful Birdwalk. As well as bringing some yummy morning tea DON’T forget some Binoculars.
This month’s activity will also be our joint event with Harcourt Valley Landcare Group.
Save the date for this Local Weeds Workshop to be held at the Sutton Grange Hall on Saturday 23 September. This is the second event for September that we are encouraging all our members to attend. We all know that there are plenty of weeds around and this Saturday morning (n.b. Saturday not Sunday) session will be an opportunity to get a bit more detailed information about what WEEDS to look for and how to get rid of them. This event has been organised by Connecting Country with the support of local landcare groups such as ours. All the details are in the flyer below.
For some of our new members this will also provide the opportunity to explore the Bushland Reserve more fully and for all us to see the difference we have made over the last five plus years. Really so much rubbish, Broom, Bridal Creeper and Gorse have been removed and so much replanting has been done. So if you haven’t wandered through lately then this Sunday (17th) is the time to do it.
