Great winter reading at the Piccabeen Bookshop
These cold days invite us to curl up with a good book.

Our second-hand bookshop always has great second-hand books at low cost, and given the quck turnover you're sure to find a book you're keen to read!

Call in to meet the volunteers, find information about TM Landcare and browse the hundreds of donated books while you're there.

Gift vouchers are available too.
The Piccabeen Bookshop is maintained entirely by volunteers and all income is returned to TM Landcare's projects.
Shop 15 / 10 Main St Nth Tamborine (Behind the shops and down the laneway beside The Country Kitchen)

General Meeting 3rd June



Do join us and meet with other friendly Landcare members!

Storms bring floods, run-off, erosion and road damage. We can expect more extreme weather events in the future, since our climate appears to be increasingly variable. We can't control the weather, so what can we do here on Tamborine Mountain to make us more resilient in the face of torrential rain?
Meet a top-level expert at our upcoming General Meeting and learn about key design solutions to these problems. Dr James Udy, chief scientist at Healthy Waterways and an adjunct Professor at the University of Queensland, will explain how we can safeguard the health of our mountain's waterways and how landowners can modify the landscape in cost-effective ways to protect it from degradation.

The outcomes are important for us all: they make the most of our important natural assets, and enable our waterways to support people's needs for food, income and recreation.
Do come along, learn and take part in this important discussion.
Meet other Landcare members and learn more about our work.

When: Sunday 3rd June, 9.30 for 10 a.m.
Where: Eagle Heights Resort Hotel Meeting Room (off Reception)
Beautifying the Sports Grounds
Icon for Save Trees message  
Our regeneration coordinator, Judy Roland, has been working with the TM Sports Association on a landscaping plan for the Sports Grounds. Landcare has provided advice about weed removal, soil improvement, suitable plants and planting. To date we have supplied 150 trees and shrubs native to the mountain which have recently been planted. If you drive along Long Rd you'll see how much better the entrance looks now - and how we're helping to make this community resource a much more attractive place.
Watch this space!

Two dates for your diary ...
Landcare will continue its work at the Sports Ground with two community planting events in July. We'll be delighted if you can join other Landcare members and residents on those mornings.
6th July
This event is in part fulfilment of the funds we were granted by last year's Tour de Tamborine proceeds.
29th July
This planting is a National Tree Day event, carried out in conjunction with the Sports Association.
More details soon...

Our next working bee is on Tuesday 5th June at Peats Crossing. This very public area is in need of some TLC.
Please join other keen volunteers at the bridge at the end of Curtis Rd at 8 a.m. for a morning's weeding (and tea and cakes).
Funding for projects
From time to time various government and private funding grants are available for regeneration-related projects. If you have a project in mind relating to our local environment which may qualify for funding, and are willing to develop an application, manage and implement the project, and report on its outcomes, please contact the committee.
