Our April field day saw us back at Sylvania Park.

With a concerted effort by a good turnout of volunteers we managed to finish stem injecting jarrah and banksia trees against dieback. The trees should be good for another five years before we have to return. However, the grass trees will need a more frequent treatment timetable, which is organised by the City of Armadale through their dieback contractor.

There will be no Roleybushcare field day in May. Instead we will be holding a dinner in the Roleystone Neighbourhood Family Centre to thank all our regular volunteers for their great efforts and work in preserving our wonderful Roleystone reserves against dieback. Our morning teas are worth showing up for at our field days but the dinner is an extra thank-you from Roleybushcare to our volunteers.

A date for your diary in June is our annual native plant sale on Saturday 9 June 2018. A good selection of native plants will be on sale at the Roleystone Shopping Centre from 9 am until 1 pm. Why not come along and buy some plants for your garden. Proceeds go towards helping to protect our community reserves against dieback.

If you have any questions on whether your native plants are local species then come along on the day and find out from one of Roleybushcare’s experts.
