Last working bee, Saturday the 25th of March, we enjoyed the sea breeze impregnated with the sweet blossom perfume of Wattle. We worked right onto the South boundary where the Crownland joins Tyagarah Nature Reserve. You can see this boundary because of the sprayed Bitou Bush along it and all sprayed to the south. It was a joy to stand on the boundary and look back to see how much land we have covered on the past 7 years (5 hectares) with primary and followup work. To witness the emerging of seedlings on the sand and their becoming trees and shrubs already flowering is to develop a relationship with the land. Yes it takes time. However a friend (Greg Park ) said the other day: “Plenty of people with leadership and great ideas, however no good ideas work without people followship“.
