Event description

Description

Hundreds of seedlings with an indigenous cultural use - the plants used for food, medicine, tools or fibre, have been planted in the garden bed near the Kangan TAFE carpark, or near the playground in Broadmeadows Town Park. This community and corporate volunteer planting will fill any gaps. A free lunch will be provided at the end of the planting.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Hume City Council's Greening events are free family-friendly and child-safe activities, with people of all ages and backgrounds welcomed. To be covered by Council's public liability and personal accident insurance policies (note only ages 12 to 85 years are covered), you will need to register your attendance on the event sign-in sheet, and follow the event supervisor's safe working instructions.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Free car-parking is usually available along Pearcedale Parade of in the Braodmeadows Shopping Centre on the opposit of the road. There is a fee to park in the adjacent Kangan TAFE carpark.

For public transport options, check the PTV Journey Planner at http://jp.ptv.vic.gov.au/

What can I bring into the event?

Please wear old comfortable clothing that you wouldn't mind getting dirty, with safe enclosed shoes. Consider if you need to bring a rain jacket or a sun-smart hat. Bring a drink bottle (water, tea and coffee will be provided) and your own packed lunch if you have any special dietary requirements (a simple BBQ lunch or pizzas are catered for lunch, with fruit snacks).

All of the other tools, equipment and materials required will be provided by Council, including gloves and sunscreen.

When will events be cancelled?

Greening events will cancelled if there is bad weather forecast, including heavy rain, thunderstorms or gale force winds. However light drizzling rain is great planting weather and the event will go ahead if people arrive (check the rain radar on http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR023.loop.shtml#skip).

Council staff are normally out on site about an hour before the event commences, setting up.
