Bushcare Group – Tarrabora Bushcare

Hi Everyone
There’s been a lot of rain – and the sun is beginning to shine through the weary clouds.  The ground is lovely and soft ready for planting and Tarrabora is on again at Tugun this Saturday.

Saraya, Gabe and the crew are hoping to be able to get in to prep the area with pre-dug holes for us ready for a planting session 8 am – 10 am.  Gabe will be on site.  I will be able to join in the “dance” this Saturday.

Thank you one and all for last month – I heard we had a huge turn out and others brought morning tea to share – thank you in particular to Mark’s wife!

I look forward to catching up with you all this Saturday.

If it is raining heavily check Facebook Tarrabora page for details or call me on after 7 am.  Saraya and Gabe will keep me posted.



Fellow Tarraborean

Tarrabora Reserve is a small vegetated area on the north bank of Currumbin Estuary that was saved from development in 1979. It stands as a testimony to the determination of the Gold Coast community to unite, to protect and nurture our precious natural environment. It is a special place for the community because of its history and its unique leafy beach setting.  Tarrabora Reserve Bushcare Group has a special place in Gecko’s history and has always been closely affiliated to Gecko.
