Great reading at the Piccabeen Bookshop
  
As the days get shorter and the evenings longer, books can be a great source of entertainment! Our bookshop always has a great range of quality second-hand books at low cost, and given the quck turnover you're sure to find a book you're keen to read!

Do drop in to chat with the volunteers, find information about our Landcare  work 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.

Creating a habitat in your own backyard
 Icon for Save Trees message 

Do you have a weedy or neglected garden?
Would you like to know how to create a great habitat for birds, beneficial insects and other creatures, using species native to the mountain?

 

We're very pleased to announce a new service provided by TM Landcare exclusively to members. Our Regeneration Coordinator can advise you about

  • removing invasive weeds on your property
  • selecting and planting native flora suitable for your location and your landscaping needs
  • facilitating the purchase of the trees/shrubs. 

 

As this consultancy is provided by expert volunteers, we request a donation of approximately $50 to TM Landcare for this service.

 

For more information or to arrange a consultation, contact
Judy Roland by phone: 5545 2052 / email: juditroland@yahoo.com.au

Note these dates in your diary:

  • Sat 25th May: monster book sale at the Piccabeen: come in to grab some bargains for a song and to chat with our friendly volunteers
  • Sun 26th May: a free TM Trolley tour of selected sites, followed by a picnic at Rosser Park.

Watch this space for more details.

Our planned meeting date of 7th April has been shifted to Sunday 5th May.
 
Where: Eagle Heights Resort Hotel Small Meeting Room (off Reception)
When: Sunday 5th May, 9.30 for 10 a.m.

Please note this in your diary. We'd be delighted to see you there!
Bond Uni students put theory into practice
 Icon for Save Trees message 
On Saturday 23rd March ten members of Bond University's Student Philanthropy Council helped TM Landcare volunteers plant up the gully adjacent to the dog off-leash area at Youngman Family Park. The students made two visits to our sites last year, as part of their regular volunteering efforts.
 
More than two hundred trees and shrubs were planted that morning, to add to the ongoing revegetation work at the park. TM Landcare and the Scenic Rim Regional Council are working together to create more rainforest habitat for the many bird species found in the area.
 
The students enjoyed the morning, even though the sun was fierce and the planting was hard work. They expressed their appreciation of the beautiful trees and surroundings and were happy to be a part of Landcare's commitment to enhancing the mountain's environment and its biodiversity.
 
Our Regeneration Coordinator, Judy Roland, provided very welcome refreshments to round out the morning's work.

Sincerely,
