Planting Day at Police Paddocks
Friday 19 July, 2013
A smoking ceremony conducted by Wurundjeri Elder Colin Hunter Jnr kicked off a recent community planting day at Dandenong Police Paddocks Reserve.
About fifteen locals, some Parks Victoria rangers, and guest of honour Colin then got to work and planted 1000 tube stock.
Parks Victoria’s Andrew Van Vloten was part of the work crew and says it was a most enjoyable day.
“Thisarea has special significance to the present day Wurundjeri Aboriginal community, so having a smoking ceremony gave added meaning to the day and a feeling of spiritual connection to the land.
It was great to see all age groups from the local community come and take part in this special project that will improve the local environment.”
The plantings are part of a project called the Dandenong Creek Frontage Revegetation Program, which is funded by a Melbourne Water grant and managed by Parks Victoria.
