On friday, the 29th of April, 2016, we celebrated 30 years of Playford Greening and Landcare's environmental activities (including the group's former incarnation as the Greening of Munno Para)!

Congratulations to all our dedicated volunteers over 3 decades. You've made a real, positive difference to the City - and we couldn't have done it without you!

The efforts of Playford Greening Volunteers have been essential in getting together our first Citizenship Seedling distribution.

A 6-pack bundle of local-native seedlings was given to to each household of new Australian citizens at the citizenship ceremony held at the Playord Civic Centre Wednesday June 15th 2016.

 


 

Playford Greening and Landcare (PGLC) is the City's main environmental volunteer group focussing on revegetation.

Playford Greening volunteers work with Council's Revegetation and Biodiversity Officers to cultivate local-native plants and plant them in reserves across the City.

Regular activities include seed-collection, processing, cleaning/bagging/weighing, tubestock cultivation, and planting.

Tubestock cultivation is undertaken in the City's Playford Operations Centre nursery in Davoren Park.

In addition to providing plants for planting in our own projects in reserves PGLC volunteer grown plants constitute at least half of each year's Buffers to Bushland project tubestock provision, and plants are also utilised by the Horticultural Services team.

Activity Days are usually undertaken on a Saturday morning, though work may sometimes be carried out on other days.

Becoming a Playford Greening and Landcare volunteer is a great way to make a positive contribution to the biodiversity of Playford while learning about local-native species and how to cultivate them.

It's also a great way to spend enjoyable time with a group of like-minded individuals. Membership of the group is open to all.

Field Trips

In addition to our regularly scheduled revegetation activities we also undertake at least 2 field trips a year - one in autumn, and one in spring.

These focus on remnant vegetation areas and are a great way to learn about the biodiversity of broader areas of the state.
