Event description

Description

The extent of plantings done by the Friends of Upper Moonee Ponds Creek along the creek and through Broadmeadows Valley Park since the 1990s is very admirable, to say the least. There will be some 700 seedlings to be planted at several spots around Westmeadows Reserve, to refresh and revitalise some garden beds and the creekbanks. World Church of God members will also be helping to do a general clean-up of any rubbish around the park, and no doubt, we will all thankfully tuck into a delicious Devonshire afternoon tea.


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?

Car-parking is usually available on the surrounding streets to the planting site, or at designated reserve carparks. There is car-parking at the end of Bent Street, or also on the other side of Moonee Ponds Creek off Ardlie Street.

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.
