Local residents, Local Shire and Local Landcare linking people, plants and plans for the future.
This is a story of a successful collaboration that began in early 2022 at Woodford Reserve Korumburra. It began with three local residents, Lillian, Tony and Rosemary, new to the area, and not previously known to each other, expressing an interest to Korumburra Landcare Group (KLG) and the South Gippsland Shire Council (SGSC) in setting up a Friend’s group to assist with the upkeep and enhancement of the beautiful reserve on their doorstep. Woodford Reserve is hidden away at the end of Woodford Place, Korumburra. It is planted out with indigenous plants in the headwaters and along the creek’s banks. A large planting day was organised by KLG in collaboration with SGSC. This initiative was sparked by a suggestion to KLG by Lillian from the Friends group and our then President, Melynda Dawson, swung into action. By the end of 2022, well over 2,000 additional plants sourced from KLG and SGSC, have enhanced the area. Streamside species will protect the banks of the creek that are prone to flash flooding and work has continued downstream broadening the corridor of local ground cover, under and mid story plant species.
