Our wild strawberry has got, err, a bit wild..

Great day today with Marcus, Linda, Mick and myself. We raked off the banks at Berrybanks and created habitat piles for all sorts of insects and small mammals.

It’s all about building nooks and crannies for insects to burrow in to and create a home.

The wild strawberry has totally owned this bank and will be so good for butterflies and bees. Not bad seeing as we only planted it two years ago.

Wildflower finds:

Fungi finds:

All in all, a pretty good day.

Next one is Wednesday 2nd May at Potsford Dam. We are sowing 22 square meters of wildflower seeds to create a haven for butterflies and bees. Bring a spade to scrape off the top and a rake to till the ground.

Great day today. Friendships being forged and a community space being made.
