Bourke View Park – Community Planting Day – 500 seedlings

In 2014 a group of residents expressed their wish for tree planting to take place on Bourke View Park, off Dongara Circle. As the park is deemed to have a specific type of vegetation growing (Forrestfield Complex) we could not incorporate this into our existing Foreshore Reserve planting schedule without the necessary approvals. Early in 2016 the City of Swan agreed the species the JBCA could plant and contributed the funds for the seedlings. The Section 95 Wooroloo Prison Crew assisted in preparing the area with 500 holes for the seedlings at the start of June. On Sunday the 26th June we held a community planting day and 15 committed residents joined a number of children to plant the seedlings in under an hour. A delicious morning tea was supplied by Cordi to top off another terrific JBCA event.
