And here we are in June!
Here at the Deer Farm, we have had quite a lot of rain - 32.5mm in fact. I am still getting out in my garden as I can, trying to undo years of well, neglect. I also have to re-instate my vegetable garden, having lost the area to a shed a few years ago. With so many trees around the house, finding an area with sun was hard. I have decided to use the area behind my studio which needs a lot of landscaping before it can be planted. It is however great fun, and I am obsessed by gardens on Instagram and YouTube, which I am trawling for inspo.
So, some of my book work type obligations are the current recipient of my neglect, but I hope you forgive me!
This month we are afraid there is going to be a bit of an inundation of emails. During the week we hope to sort out our new Landcare membership portal system. The Landcare team at the WGCMA have developed this wonderful system that allows us to manage our memberships and take credit card payments on line. You will be given a login Cnd will be able to manage your membership payments from your phone or computer. It will send you reminders when memberships are due or like me you may wish to have a auto-renewing subscription. Saves worrying about it. When it is ready to go we will let you know to expect an email from the system inviting you to join. We will also share just how easy it is to use. The whole thing integrates with our website, so will be very easy to find and manage.
We have just about finished our Action Plan revitalisation questionnaire, so look out for that in about a week. When we have your responses in we will meet somewhere awesome (warm, good food and drink) and quickly pull the whole thing together to be ratified at the AGM.
I have found a lot of good resources to share with you this month so please read through, you may find something that makes your day!
Don’t forget Bird Monitoring this Wednesday! 4.00pm meet at the sign next to the Blackspur Creek bridge on the Rail Trail.

Herb Wildes, one of our members and SGLN Boad Rep sent through this today. If interested contact me and I will pass it on to Herb.
Good morning Jill.
Winter has started and water has started running off. So, I am thinking it's time for me to plant some trees. I only need, say, thirty for bush infill. I wonder if anyone else is interested in an early planting to make my trip to the Strez nursery( if plants are available) more economic and time efficient.
I'm not in an urgent hurry, but would like to aim for about 2 weeks time to start..
