Around the clubs


Rotary Club of Hawthorn joined with cluster clubs to plant at Hays Paddock in Kew. Many volunteers turned up and Peter from Parks and Gardens kept every-one right. Down and dirty they got, and planted a couple of hundred Poa labillardierei and a couple of other species of native grasses. Not trees but undergrowth and ground covers to maintain the soil and habitat.
